Welcome to North Down & Ards U3A
North Down & Ards U3A offers a programme of educational and leisure activities to people no longer in full time employment.
Educational qualifications are not required for admission and none are awarded. What is essential is that members contribute their own experience, interests and enthusiasms actively, so that they learn from each other.
Although North Down and Ards U3A is part of a national movement, it is an autonomous organisation with over 1000 members who have the opportunity to participate in over 50 different activities.
