U3A Groups

U3A Interest Groups thrive by tapping into the experience, expertise and knowledge of the members. No academic qualifications are required and there are no examinations. Members may join existing groups at any time provided there is sufficient space. If the group is full, members may ask to go on a waiting list.

Any member may suggest a theme and new groups may start during the year. Please contact Susie, our Group Convenor group.convenor.u3a.boi@gmail.com if you have suggestions for a new group.

Every group has a facilitator who organises the meeting. In some groups facilitation is a shared responsibility. Whilst most groups meet in members’ homes there is no obligation to offer one’s home as a venue. Although groups generally meet once a month, some groups meet more often. It is for each group to decide in conjunction with the Group Convenor how often they meet. Timetable for Group Meetings
