28th YEAR of U3A in NZ


Other U3A in Action Presentations

Study Group Presentations

U3A’s point of difference from other organisations for Seniors is our Study Group [Special Interest Group] structure.  This enables us to carry out our stated aim

Those who teach will also learn

To the right is a list of the ‘mini talks’ which will be presented on the day by members of various U3A groups.  These members, delivering the presentations are not necessarily experts in the fields concerned, but as a result of personal in depth research will provide the learning experiences for those of us here today.
