Welcome to our Website

Ferndown University of the Third Age was founded in 1998 and currently has over 500 members, from Ferndown and the surrounding areas.  It is a voluntary organisation for retired and semi-retired people to meet together and learn new skills.

You may ask ‘What is the ‘Third Age?’  It’s when you’ve finished working or bringing up a family and have more time to follow your interests and lead a full life.  Members have very varied experiences and acquire diverse skills during their lives and some will share these skills and experiences by offering educational, creative and leisure activities.  

The atmosphere is relaxed and informal.  

There are neither entry qualifications nor examinations.


We also hold regular social events and coffee mornings.
