Part-time distance learning PhD in Ageing, MSc in Ageing, and PhD in Dementia Studies.

These Blended Learning courses consist of 6 taught modules over 2 years in which students learn about theories and models used in the areas of gerontology, ageing and dementia, develop understandings of dementias and ageing from different perspectives, and develop research skills. The PhD students then carry out independent research projects often in their places of work supervised by experienced researchers at Lancaster University, a UK top 10 University. Our students will be affiliated with the Lancaster Centre for Ageing Research and have the opportunity to engage with the activities of the Centre and benefit from the student forum activities. Students are invited to seminars, symposia and conferences where they can discuss the implications of their research projects with academics, peers, lay older adults and practitioners.

The Division of Health Research in the Faculty of Health and Medicine have been offering Blended Learning PhD programmes since 2010. We have many successful graduates who have been benefited in their careers from the high-quality postgraduate education. Blended Learning courses are specifically designed to offer students the flexibility to study part-time by e-learning and students are supported by experienced professional and academic teams at Lancaster University.
