The Typographic Hub  is a research centre for the history, theory and pracatice of typography, part of the Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, a faculty of Birmingham City University.

U3A is the national representative body for the Universities of Third Age (U3As) in the UK. U3As are self-help, self-managed lifelong learning co-operatives for older people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun.

Watford Museum tells the story of Watford past and present through on- and off-line exhibitions, events and other activities.

West Herts College is a general FE college with campuses in Dacorum, Kings Langley and Watford. In the recent Ofsted inspection West Herts College was graded as ‘Outstanding.’ Each year nearly 12,000 students pass through its doors - around 4,500 studying full time – on their way to successfully completing their qualification.
