The Dorrigo Plateau University of the Third Age Incorporated, [U3A], is a not-for-profit organisation, administered entirely by volunteers. These dedicated people look after the detailed running of the group, especially involved in arranging courses, sessions and workshops over a variety of interesting subjects.
Our voluntary tutors freely donate their time and are willing to share their skills and life experiences with members of the U3A group; this results in everyone learning for pleasure, both tutors and participants.

  The "University of the Third Age" or U3A, is open to anyone who wants to learn things, not for qualifications, but for the reward of learning and the joy of discovery. As well, attending classes is an opportunity for meeting others with an interest in discovering more about the world around us.

We are always pleased to welcome offers of new courses as we rely on volunteers. Our Spanish classes have been running for over ten years and in the past year we have been able to add German. We also offer from time to time sessions on computing, life as a senior, mathematics, on travel, art, wildlife, cooking and other subjects.

Classes normally run within school terms.

The current program is available here


As a member you are entitled to attend any courses you choose, but if you decide to attend a course or workshop, it is essential that you contact the tutor and register for the course before attending; this is important because if a tutor thinks there are not enough participants for a course, seven days before the course begins, then the course may be cancelled.  
A small donation may be requested from participants in some courses to assist with the hire of venues.
