About the course

According to the WHO, between 2015 and 2050 the proportion of the world's population over 60 years will nearly double from 12% to 22%. With this rapid increase, countries face major challenges to ensure their health and social systems are ready to make the most of this demographic shift.

This course will provide you with an advanced understanding about the ageing of individuals and populations, the implications this has for policy, practice and the development of products and services, as well as the demands and challenges this raises. It covers content and skills development in social gerontology, ageing and population studies, dementia studies and health care and practice.
