The French “Université du Troisième Age” began in 1972, and is still associated with the official education system. The first British group was formed in Cambridge in 1982, but as a voluntary self-help organisation. The movement is now widespread, both in Britain and abroad.

The Huddersfield and District U3A is not an academic institution, but a society of people sharing the similar aims of maintaining and improving the quality of life by keeping fulfilled and active in later life. It was founded in 1984 by Edith Bentley MBE MA, and has been given help and encouragement by Kirklees Council, Kirklees Cultural Services, the Huddersfield Examiner, Huddersfield Radio, several High Schools and numerous local people. It is a Registered Charity but receives no grantsfrom the Local Authority. There are now over 2,000 active, subscribing members.

We are delighted that on 2 June 2005 our U3A was honoured by being one of the 92 groups in the UK selected to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The annual subscription is £12 and membership is open to all those over 50 years of age or who are registered disabled. 

All classes and activities are held during the daytime and all courses, unless otherwise stated, are for two terms. The fee for a 10 week class is £10.00, for a 20 week £20.

Have a look at out extensive range of classes, and we look forward to welcoming you very soon.  If you have any questions, please contact us at the Huddersfield & District U3A office.
