Our short courses can be taken face-to-face and through distance learning.

Short courses

Up to two short courses can be taken individually, and if more modules are completed successfully and the difference in tuition fees made up, a higher qualification will be awarded (for example, postgraduate certificate with three modules or postgraduate diploma with six modules).

If you are interested in taking a Short Course in a different Semester than the one shown, please email us to discuss at

Distance learning

The distance learning programmes in gerontology are designed for those who wish to combine high-quality academic study in the field of gerontology with other obligations, such as paid work and/or family/care.

They will provide you with an understanding of key issues related to population ageing in the developed and the developing world, as well as policy responses that are aimed at improving the welfare of older people.
