U3A was founded in Toulouse, France in 1972. It began as a university-based organisation, but quickly evolved into something less formal. The concept of self-help and mutual sharing was introduced and now forms the backbone of U3A groups around the world.

There are more than 3000 groups spread over all continents and there are more than 200 independent U3A groups in Australia.  There are about 35 U3A groups in Queensland, representing a total membership of about 24,000 people.
