Summary

The MSc Gerontology (Distance Learning) programme offers you the opportunity to study gerontology from a distance, allowing you to access learning resources online in a flexible manner. Understanding the process of population ageing brings critical advantages to employees in a range of professional sectors, such as the health and social care, research, and the local and national policy sectors.

The programme will equip you with academic knowledge in Gerontology, focusing on evidence related to the wellbeing of older people, and with policy knowledge relating to social policies aimed at preparing societies for ageing populations. In addition, the programme will offer you a range of training opportunities in research methods, both quantitative and qualitative.

The PG Certificate in Gerontology (Distance Learning) is a programme delivered completely online, offering you the opportunity to complete three modules in the area of ageing. The programme includes an introduction to the discipline of Gerontology and offers you options to specialise in topics such as health and wellbeing, poverty and social protection, and mental health. It allows you to consider a range of careers in the areas of health and social care, policy-making and research. Having successfully completed this programme, you are welcome to progress your studies to the MSc Gerontology (DL) programme.
