Regional/National Events

As a member of Chichester u3a you can also participate in the Regional and National Events:

South East Area Forum of the u3a


For more than 15 years the South East Area Forum of the u3a has been running a very successful Summer School at the University of Chichester, which all u3a members in the area are eligible to attend. This is a residential course, but if you prefer to “commute” from home, you can book the courses, evening activities and meals, thereby enabling you to participate fully and to meet others on your course(s).  The non-residential cost (without evening meal) is £180.  Booking is now open and see the links below for more information.

This year the subjects are:


Earth Matters

Family History

Four 19th & 20th Century British Poets

Fun with French

Hatha Yoga


Maths:  Power & Patterns

Music:  Blues and Folk Music in the USA

Ukulele for Beginners
