Adult Education

University of the Third Age and other adult education links.

University of the Third Age
Learning resources, forthcoming events and details of this voluntary organisation for retired and semi-retired people. No qualifications required or awarded.
Open University
For first class undergraduate and postgraduate courses in UK and all over the world. Now rather expensive - but financial help available (especially to non-graduates).
Poole Universty of the Third Age
This website gives a good idea of the wide range of Poole u3a activities. Some, like ours, are continuing on-line in the virus emergency
Free On-line Philosophy Courses
This is a list of free on-line philosophy course on the openculture web site which also has many other educational on-line resources in Politics, Philosophy & other subjects.
WEA
The WEA (the Workers Educational Association) is an excellent provider of part-time short non-examination educational courses for all adults. As of early 2021 there were, of course, no face-to-face Politics or Philosophy courses available but some tempting offerings on-line.
Bournemouth u3a
Bournemouth u3a had two Philosophy groups in 2019/20, but none are meeting on-line at present. Other local u3a groups are also to be found in the major towns and some villages and suburbs in Dorset.
Oxford University Continuing Education
Currently (December 2019) 66 Philosophy and 96 Politics offerings including some on-line. Introductory Politics on-line course has Tansey & Jackson as required reading!
Southampton University Lifelong Learning
Southampton's Lifelong Learning Programme is on a limited scale - but has some interesting offerings including the Philosophy Cafe and Politics Study Days. You can also take a first degree in Philosophy or Philosophy & English on a part-time basis. The Philosophy Department hosts a series of open seminars sponsored by the Royal Institute of Philosophy - but these are often quite technical.
Bournemouth University
The Media School has an innovative full time undergraduate course in Politics with emphasis on modern media, and postgraduate courses on Political Psychology and International Political Communications.At first degree level Politics can also be combined with Law, Sociology or Economics. There are is no Philosophy or Extra-Mural Department - but the Annual Festival of Learning is worth investigating.
Future Learn
Free Massive Open On-line Courses (MOOC) from British and overseas Universities - I enjoyed Exeter's course on Empire. More internet courses and lectures can be found on You Tube, iTunesu, AcademicEarth, Coursera, EdX and Udacity.
