A new initiative for iU3A — these will be similar to groups but will have a limited duration. Courses will be on particular topics and delivered in different formats. Some will be run as a 'MOOC' (Massive Open Online Course). Details will be provided for each. Our offering currently includes:

Course 1a — Power and Politics1

Course 1b — Power and Politics2

Course 2 — Alexander Technique

Current Groups
Interest groups are at the core of Islington U3A and reflect the knowledge, skills and expertise of our members. Many groups are based on equal participation, while others (for example the language groups) have an expert leader. A majority of groups meet in members’ homes, providing a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. All groups are informal — inspired and enthused by their members. Click on any group below to learn more. You can see which groups are full by looking at Beacon.
