U3A Atherton Tablelands

Welcome to the University of the Third Age (U3A) on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands!

So what is the Third Age?
Life can be divided up into roughly four stages, the first three of approximately 20 – 25 years each. The First Age is a time of growth and development under the guidance of our family and community. Education is mostly formalised as we learn and practice the life skills required in adulthood. The Second Age is the age of achievement, when we strive to establish careers, family and community. We earn our place in society and achieve status and security. Next is the Third Age, the age of fulfilment. We can look back and reflect on what is really important to us and what we may have neglected in those busy years. This age provides the opportunities to reach our full potential by completing any missing bits in our hearts, minds, bodies and spirits.

The U3A organisation is truly International, having been founded in France 50 years ago. Each U3A in Australia is locally autonomous with its own management committee of volunteers drawn from the membership. U3A groups are linked and supported by state networks.

Is it really a University?
Well it is, if you think of a university in the medieval sense as “a community of teachers and learners, a place where information is exchanged”. We do, as it turns out, have links with James Cook University and our members are welcome to attend some of its courses. However, the good news is there are no entry requirements for U3A, no exams, no degrees or awards granted, and very low fees or none at all!
