Study Groups

Study groups are the heart of the U3A and the Aylesbury Vale U3A covers a wide range of subjects and interests as you will see from the list below. U3A members can be a member of any number of groups. Groups are operated autonomously by group leaders and their deputy. A link to each group is set out below  which will show the group objectives and meeting arrangements..

The title ‘Study Group’ is admittedly rather formal but many groups are far from formal and all try to be interesting and entertaining where appropriate. It should be noted that some groups have to impose a charge – for meeting rooms, transportation, resources etc. – but this is kept to a minimum and will be disclosed upon enquiry.

Members of other u3as may, under certain circumstances. join our study groups as ‘Associate Members’  This document outlines the terms and conditions

If your area of interest is not covered here then perhaps you would consider starting a group of your own! Contact our group coordinator with your ideas.
