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.
