We have resumed full activities for 2021, subject of course to current Covid restrictions.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) Cygnet is a co-operative learning community (that’s the ‘university’) for retired and semi-retired people (that’s the ‘third age’), run by volunteers on a non-profit basis. We are one of many similar U3A groups in Tasmania, across Australia and New Zealand, and throughout the World.

We aim to encourage the pursuit of learning and the opportunity to acquire new skills and experiences in an informal and friendly atmosphere. See more on our News and Program pages.

There are no entry qualifications, assessments or awards.

Term Dates for 2021:
  • TERM ONE March 9 – May 14
  • TERM TWO June 15 – Aug 20
