Social Sciences: Ageing/Gerontology

Taught degrees

We offer a range of postgraduate programmes in gerontology, tailored to needs of graduates, mid-career professionals and mature returners to education. These include full-time, part-time and short-courses, and can be taken face-to-face or by distance learning.

Short courses

In addition to the standard mode of teaching over a semester, we offer stand-alone short courses which are taken over a period of 12 weeks. They are designed to meet the needs of busy mid-career professionals, new entrants to the University and the social sciences, or returners to education who wish to pursue a particular subject area. The short courses can also be taken as part of continuing professional development (CPD).
