Live to Learn and Learn to Live with U3A Costa del Sol

The U3A is a worldwide, non-profit making movement with the aim of promoting learning for enjoyment and personal fulfilment amongst mature people. No qualifications are required or awarded. Informal study groups are led by members who have volunteered to share their particular interests or expertise with other members. It is run by members for members and the Group Leaders are volunteers who share their interests and expertise with others. The Costa del Sol U3A was established in 1997 and has a membership of almost 300.

The Costa del Sol branches of the U3A in Fuengirola and Marbella organize courses from October to May in a wide variety of subjects.
