It is not a university but an organisation where anyone with an interest in a particular subject may learn and discuss within a group of like minded members. There are over 50 groups ranging from Archaeology to "Writing for Pleasure". However, you don't have to belong to a Group as one has the opportunity to make friends and join in outings and visits etc. There are monthly General Meetings where an external Speaker will give a lecture on their particular subject and the Chairman will make any necessary announcements.
