U3A - the University of the Third Age - is an international movement that fosters lifelong learning for pleasure. It is a self-help body of volunteers interested in their own and community education. There are no prior qualifications or exams, and no degrees awarded; the only requirement is that you are aged 50+, retired or semi-retired.
U3A Banyule allows you to enjoy a wide range of educational courses, creative and physical activities, excursions and social events. We have over 700 members and offer approximately 120 courses and activities each year.
For example, we offer foreign language, history, Australian literature and science courses. Why not engage in the issues of the day in our Current Affairs class? Or strengthen the body and mind doing Tai Chi or yoga? Or derive the benefits from social activities like a lingering lunch, sketching and walking? As a full member of U3A Banyule, you can enjoy the experience of attending university lectures of your choice, at La Trobe University (free of charge) - for further information see La Trobe Uni & Other Learning Opportunities.
U3A Banyule is a thriving dynamic community whose members embrace lifelong learning and positive ageing by sharing knowledge and life skills within a culture of respect, friendship, good will and with a commitment to community engagement.
