Who we are
The University of the Third Age Clarence (U3A Clarence) has been providing quality courses and activities for the residents of Clarence for over 25 Years.View latest newsletter
The original concept of U3A was to extend the intellectual learning life of older individuals. U3A Clarence does this and more with a varied program of lectures and other activities.
What we do
We get together to exercise our minds and bodies at entirely our own pace, with other co-operative and mutually supportive members. Our varied activities include lectures and discussion groups on geography, science, history, art, music and issues of topical interest. For our physical wellbeing we have Tai Chi, yoga, zumba and line dancing. During the year we organise social activities such as a trivia, visits to places of interest and group bus trips. We also have regular morning tea sessions to connect with other members.View our courses
Who should join
We welcome all retired and semi-retired members. Our members include people from their 50's to their 90's, all still enjoy interesting activities with like-minded people in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.Contact us
Unlike regular universities, there are no exams and no previous knowledge of the subject matter is required. All are welcome regardless of educational level, past occupations, and backgrounds.
Where we meet
The Rosny Library is our meeting place. It is well appointed, warm and convenient. We are run entirely by a committee of volunteer members which is why we can keep our annual subscription to $50 to cover essentials. Subscription and enrolment forms are available on other pages of this website.Contact us
