Our online course enables you to tailor your educational needs to your professional interests. Designed for busy professionals, it offers a flexible, bespoke way for you to expand your knowledge of the mechanisms of ageing, age-related disease and research.
Changing demographics have led to an increasing older population. This has resulted in a greater need to understand the mechanisms of ageing and age-related disease, to undertake research with older people and to prescribe appropriately.
The course is aimed at clinicians, allied health professionals and scientists with a particular interest in ageing. Knowledge gained from this course will help you to understand the needs of older people, and further, to identify research opportunities to improve the health and well-being of the ageing population.
This innovative course is ideal if you already have a primary qualification (eg MBBS, BDS, BSc) and are working in the fields of health or life sciences. It has been developed to provide a flexible approach, making it sustainable and compatible with professional career pathways whilst addressing the needs of a modern health service.
The course is taught online, so you can choose to study anytime and anywhere. This flexibility means that you can fit your studies around your other commitments, plus develop your online literacy as a transferable skill.
You can pick from over 30 modules in a diverse range of subjects to create your own bespoke course of study. You can choose to complete a single module for continuing professional development (CPD) through to a full masters. You can work at your own pace in your own environment.
For each module you will receive direction and support from your module leader. We will encourage you to get to know your fellow students and support each other in your studies. One of our aims is for you to develop academic networks and relationships that will continue after graduation.
