The word “university” is used in its original sense of people coming together to share and pursue learning in all its forms. No academic qualifications are required and membership is open to anyone who is retired or semi-retired.
Our members are in the so-called Third Age, which comes after the First Age of childhood dependence and the Second Age of full-time employment and parental responsibility.
Causeway U3A is a member of the Third Age Trust. We have approximately 800 members, which makes us the largest U3A in Northern Ireland. Activities are centred in the towns of Portstewart and Coleraine on the beautiful north coast of Ireland, near The Giant's Causeway from which we take our name.
Membership is open to all. There is no age restriction and we particularly welcome applications from younger retired or semi-retired people. No qualifications are required.
There are a number of U3A groups in Northern Ireland and we work together with them through the regional committee. You can find links to all these groups on the Northern Ireland U3A regional website http://u3ani.info
