What our students think

I think generally this course is very wonderful. One thing I loved so much was the content of the materials and you take on a number of subjects that really look at all of the aspects of ageing.

The MSc Gerontology part-time taught course offered that flexibility, and a breadth of study, to stimulate and challenge my 'medical model' background.

The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship is invaluable to me. The scholarship has enabled me to learn a lot about the British and other foreign cultures. I have been able to network; which is invaluable! Most importantly, it has given me the opportunity to study my dream course, Gerontology at Southampton. The University of Southampton is one of the top 5 institutions for ageing studies in the UK.

I find studying long distance really exciting, I can stay home, I can be in my bedroom or I can be at the beach when I do my reading. I can look up in the middle of the night and study then, it is up to me.

The course supports you in critically engaging with headlines e.g. “older people have tremendous health problems and do not contribute a lot to society”. You are able to find your arguments to change the way older people are perceived and to argue for policy change.

Initially I was highly deficient and rather sceptical about writing but one of the main reasons I wanted to study gerontology was that I thought this programme would expose me and make me do a lot of writing. I am very happy with what I have achieved.

Even as distance learning you don’t feel like you are at distance.
