The Sussex U3A Network arranges study days and other events through the year, and any U3A member from the region can attend these. Their website also lists lots of U3A events elsewhere in the country.
The U3A HQ also organises study days nationwide,  very often in London. Other organisations to which Chichester U3A belongs, such as the Hampshire South Central U3A Network (SCN) and the SE Forum (SEF), also organise occasional study days and other events, such as Summer Schools.
