U3A (University of the Third Age)
One in five of the population is in The Third Age. The Third Age is when you have time for yourself- after the job and kids are gone - usually after the age of 50! 'University' is a loose term as there are no academic requirements for membership and no exams. U3A members help to provide stimulating study groups and recreational activities. There are no qualifications to join, very small outlay and no pressure.

Special Interest Groups

See local libraries, the local press such as the Woking Review diary and the free magazine, What's On In Woking produced by Woking Borough Council.
