Course summary

Course Overview

This part-time and flexible PhD is led by the research-active academics based in our Division of Health Research. Our academics produce high-quality research with national and international impact on health and well-being policy. The PhD in Ageing is your chance to work with our academics on the production of a 35,000-word thesis in your area of interest and professional practice that makes an original contribution to knowledge development within the discipline.

The programme will help you to gain deeper and critical insights into population ageing and sparks thinking into how to provide better health and care systems to support older people and their families. A personal academic tutor and two thesis supervisors will provide you with support for each step of your PhD, from your first taught module to your own research project.

Combining innovative distance learning and an annual academy held at the University, this part-time, flexible doctorate runs over a minimum of four to seven years. The programme begins with a compulsory five-day induction academy at the University. Each of the subsequent academic years start with a compulsory three-day academy, while the rest of the course is delivered via e-learning. Attendance at the annual academies is compulsory until you are confirmed as being on the PhD.

Though you will specialise in your own area of professional practice, the PhD in Ageing is designed to broaden and diversify your employment options. Our selection of taught courses will enhance your skills in up-to-date research techniques and provide you with knowledge that extends beyond a single discipline, ensuring that you graduate with a wide range of skills that enhance your employability.
