THE ORIGINS OF U3A
The University of the Third Age is the age of ‘active retirement’ following the first two ages of youth and work/homemaking. It was established in France in 1972 and now has members throughout Europe, England, Asia, North and South America, New Zealand and Australia.In 1984 the first Australian U3A’s were formed in Melbourne based on the British model. They spread quickly throughout Victoria and by 1989 to every other State and Territory and over 60,000 members now enjoy the educational, social, physical and creative activities offered.
