Welcome to SU3A (Sheffield University of the Third Age). The U3A is an international movement of retired and semi retired people who come together to continue their educational, social, and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment. No qualifications required!

U3A members draw on their own experience to teach and learn from each other for pleasure and the reward of learning and continuing personal development. Members make new friends, develop and share new interests, and can take part in running groups and the SU3A as a whole.


It’s all voluntary: a typical U3A will be home to many activity groups covering hundreds of different subjects – active, creative, reflective, as well as events for all members.  Explore the buttons to find out what goes on, and feel free to come to our next Drop In.

The Executive Committee will require a new Chair and Treasurer at the AGM in 2020. More details can be found here.
