The Gdańsk University of the Third Age

There is a place where some people start to enjoy their life. No matter what age they are and what they have done until now. Here they can learn almost everything they want, meet great people and have fun. It's not just a school, it's a community. You can start studying here if you are at least 55 years old.

The University of the Third Age was established in November 2004. At the moment there are over 1000 students in Gdansk section. More than 80% of them are women. There are more than 70 groups and almost 30 different subjects. English language, computer, gymnastics and movement exercises are the most popular. Subjects as 'chemistry of life', 'music closer to us', 'to be a woman in autumn of life' as well as art classes, photography or literature exercise are all a proof showing that University's offer is very diverse. Everyone can find something for himself.
