Established in 1982, the Jagiellonian University of the Third Age (JUTA) aims at promoting education among the senior citizens and preventing the ageing of its students and their families.
The JUTA carries out lectures in the humanities and biological and medical subjects. General knowledge from the lectures is complemented by the information provided during classes. The most active students may join associations that allow for individual studies.
Apart from educating senior students the JUTA also helps those in need. Students frequenting the JUTA visit the needy at their homes and in hospitals, read books to the disabled, offer their assistance with public health service and social welfare institutions as well as support children's homes in Poland and Belarus.
