Study type Taught


The MSc Global Ageing and Policy (DL) programme introduces students to the study of ageing over the life course, focusing particularly on the principles of policy evaluation in ageing societies, and on the opportunities and challenges associated with ageing in specific regions of the world, including China, South-east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Following the successful completion of 6 taught modules, this programme also offers students the opportunity to conduct independent research through the MSc Dissertation, often with links to current research projects in the Centre for Research on Ageing.

The PG Certificate in Global Ageing and Policy (DL) is made up of 3 taught modules and designed to provide a multidisciplinary introduction to gerontology and policy evaluation to busy mid-career professionals, new entrants to the University and the social sciences, or returners to education who wish to pursue the subject area. Students who successfully complete this qualification are welcome to continue their studies with us.
