Who we are
We live in an ageing society, and more of us can expect to live longer
Population ageing brings new challenges for individuals and policymakers alike. Understanding ageing over the life course is at the heart of such challenges.
The Centre for Research on Ageing examines key issues in ageing across the life course. Our members of staff are engaged in high-quality postgraduate teaching in gerontology and cutting-edge research in the field. We offer postgraduate programmes, face-to-face or by distance learning, which equip students with substantive knowledge of policy-relevant issues in gerontology and with quantitative and qualitative research methods training.
SARN, chaired by Professor Maria Evandrou, brings together academics from across the University with a broad range of research interests in the field of ageing.
Our postgraduate programmes cater for busy mid-career professionals, new entrants to university or returners who wish to pursue the subject area.
