Gerontology and Ageing Studies
The department leads the way in research on the civic and social engagement and participation of older people, and the disruption of this engagement by personal and structural factors. Interests also encompass the influence the natural and built�up environment has on the ageing population, and care provision for the older person across such areas as social care, health care, residential care, palliative care, chronic conditions, and falls and their prevention.

PhD applicants would normally have, or be studying for, a Master�s degree.
