We are based in Skipton but have members attending from as far as Dent and Leeds.

The University of the Third Age is a worldwide association for men and women of the Third Age who believe that there is no age limit to learning and creative activity and that keeping a lively mind and healthy body is essential to mental and physical well-being. The U3A started in France in 1972, with the first British U3A opening in Cambridge in 1982. Craven U3A was founded in 1985 as an autonomous branch of the National U3A.

Third Age
There is no lower or upper age limit, but we cater for those retired from full time work.

The University of Life – no qualifications are required – none are given.
