Friendship and Fun through Lifelong Learning

What's New Calendar

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international self-help organisation for retired and semi-retired people, in their Third Age. It provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities in lifelong learning. The success of each U3A is that they draw on the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members.

Flintshire U3A is a vibrant association of groups, which meet to offer a wide variety of activities and interests.
These meetings also offer a chance to make new friends, share interests and develop new skills in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
