University of the Third Age
The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a lifelong learning programme providing non-professional education and intended for senior citizens.
Citizens who have qualified for an old-age pension may apply for the programme and citizens entitled to a disability pension may become U3A attendees regardless of the age limit. Applicants older than 50 years may apply for an exemption.
Process of study

All the courses offered within the U3A programme at TBU are taught in Czech.
