Edinburgh u3a

Welcome to Edinburgh u3a!

As we transition into our Third Age (hard to define, but you know when you are getting there) Edinburgh u3a provides the opportunity to develop personal interests; to challenge ourselves and provide new direction in later life;  and to build new friendships in a supporting social context.

There are  over 1,000 u3as in the UK with over 400,000 members. Edinburgh u3a is one of the larger with over 2,500 members - we bring our knowledge, skills and experience to run a huge variety of activities - from Art and Astronomy to Wine Tasting and Yoga, and 180 others in between. 

Join us and… Do Something Brilliant Today!

Membership of only £10 a year gives you access to all these activities and more - run by our members for our members.  You can browse our Groups page and sign up with Edinburgh u3a on the Join Us page.
