The U3A is an organisation promoting the sharing of the many educational, creative and leisure pursuits of its members with a view to enhancing their mutual enjoyment of life. It is a university in the original sense of the word, being a gathering of people devoted to learning. It draws its members from those in the Third Age of their life, this being loosely described as that time after both the first age of childhood and the second age of employment and perhaps parental responsibility. Anyone in his or her Third Age can join. All you need is interest and enthusiasm.
Although called a University it has members, not students, as no formal qualifications are required and there are no examinations, certificates or diplomas offered or given. Our members organise their own activities to suit their interests by drawing on their pool of skills, knowledge and experience, and by sharing, encourage personal development. All of the 400 plus U3A groups in the UK have a similar outlook, but each develops in its own particular way in response to the needs of its members.
Since 1990, when Pembrokeshire U3A was formed, we have developed a wide range of groups (click)
Chairs of the Pembrokeshire U3A
