Centre for Research on Ageing

Postgraduate training

We offer a range of postgraduate opportunities in Gerontology, 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 the subject area.

Taught courses

We offer flexible study routes designed to suit your needs. All our taught courses can be studied full or part-time; based in Southampton, or via distance learning in your own home. The courses available include:

  • MSc Gerontology
  • Postgraduate Diploma
  • Postgraduate Certificate
  • Modular programme (up to two individual modules)

Up to two individual modules can be taken as part of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and successful students can complete more modules and make up the difference in tuition fees, in order to complete a higher qualification (for example, Postgraduate Certificate with three modules or Postgraduate Diploma with six modules).

Research programmes

Our research programmes are for those interested in carrying out further research, or preparing for a future career in a particular area of gerontology of interest. Our MSc Gerontology (Research) is an ESRC recognised programme providing specialist training in research methods and the Centre provides a stimulating environment for research in the areas of gerontology, ageing, lifecourse and social policy.

  • MSc Gerontology (Research)
  • MPhil/PhD in Gerontology

Both routes can be studied full or part-time.
