Active Ageing

Active Ageing 

 

The Community College offers two Active Ageing programs.

 

  • The University of the Third Age (U3A)
  • Creative Learners

 

Although the word ‘University’ is in the title, the University of the Third Age is more like a coming together of minds and friends with something in common; a thirst for knowledge and a passion for learning. The U3A brings together mature aged students so they can learn from one another. 

 

Creative Learners classes include: drawing, painting, embroidery, lead lighting, strength training, card making, patchwork and mosaics. 

University of the Third Age (U3A) 


 
Albury Wodonga Community College is affiliated with U3A Albury Wodonga.

 

The University of the Third Age is a worldwide movement. Each U3A is autonomous but able to enjoy the benefit of being part of a large, loose-knit association.

 

A volunteer coordinator facilitates the process but everyone contributes according to knowledge and experience. There’s no homework, no exams, no degrees or diplomas - just a lot of fun with mature-aged people who are keen to keep themselves mentally active.
