Our courses focus on current social policy guidelines, working on issues that affect people as they age, and preparing you for a career in gerontology. You'll learn how patterns of care change over time, how support is applied between different generations, and how care is provided to people with different characteristics. Our graduates go on to careers including local, national and international policy development, geriatric medicine and nursing, and further specialist research.

Our research makes a difference
My research interests broadly combine the areas of ageing, gender and social policy.
My research interests span 3 areas of investigation: inequalities in later life, informal carers and employment, and the retirement prospects of future generations of elders.
