Building the future

What is U3A Nigeria?

U3A Nigeria is Multi-generational, promoting intergenerational programmes for the re-engagement of older persons who are transferring their dying vocations to the younger generation to occupy them for better productive engagements and reduction of poverty in both generations.

This is one of U3A Nigeria’s contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our youth also transfer their new technologies to the older persons for them to be properly trained for re-engagements.

We are also for Retraining of Teachers in co-operation with Colleges of Education, Universities and Teacher Agencies.



Do you want to keep your mind active and engaged in learning new things? If so, third age university free courses may be just what you are looking for. These courses are designed specifically for retired and semi-retired older adults and provide a chance to continue learning throughout your life.


Do you want to keep your mind active in retirement? Or maybe you didn’t get the chance to study certain topics when you were younger and now you’re ready to learn. Whatever your reasons for wanting to learn, the University of the Third Age (U3A) offers a wide range of courses which can be taken at any level, depending on your interest. 


With more and more people leading busy lives, it’s no wonder that online learning is becoming increasingly popular. Whether you’re looking to advance your career or simply learn something new, online courses offer a convenient and flexible way to fit learning into your schedule.

Research & Shared Learning

Shared Learning Projects are a great way to get people involved in learning together. They can be devised on a national or regional basis, or by the members themselves. Projects can cover anything that stimulates the interest of those taking part.

Transfer of Knowledge

We teach Gerontology and Geriatrics to care givers, Doctors, Social workers, Community Extension workers, Policy Makers, Pharmacists etc., not as a purely academic area of interest but as strategies to promote the wellbeing of older persons and also to promote intergenerational programmes and poverty reduction.


In recent years, an increasing number of adults  aged 55 and over have been seeking paid employment. This is due to a variety of factors, such as the rising cost of living and the need to supplement retirement income. While many of these adults are able to find work without much difficulty, there are some who face unique challenges in their job search.

The meaning of U3A Nigeria is LEARNING, SHARING and MAKING FRIENDS. While Active/Healthy Ageing and making friends is the Foundation of the U3A Nigeria.

Some Good Words…

I have been able to enrich my third age life by becoming a member of U3A Nigeria. It has helped to learn and contribute to fellow Nigerians.


Share your stories

The success stories of the u3a are many and varied, but all have one thing in common – they show how the u3a can make a real difference to the lives of its members. Here are just a few examples:

• A u3a member in the UK who had been widowed for several years took up painting and discovered a new passion in life.

• A group of u3a members in Australia started a food exchange program, which has now grown to include over 100 members and helps to reduce food waste and save money.
