Gerontology and Ageing Studies

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017). Gerontology and Ageing Studies benefits from lectures delivered by subject leaders both domestically and from around the globe. The programme shifts the central focus of ageing from the medical model to one that encompasses a range of disciplines including psychology, sociology and demography, therefore viewing ageing as a positive experience. We provide opportunities for work placements within local NGOs (non-Governmental Organisations) as well as opportunities to study abroad at one of our partner institutions in Alberta, Canada.

Course modules

Modules include: environment and ageing; foundations in research; health and ageing; older people, citizenship and participation; perspectives on ageing; policies and practices for an ageing population; population ageing and policy; psychology of ageing.
