Course content

Research into dementia is increasingly being given funding priority, reflecting both national and worldwide emphases on the importance of improving care. The UK Government has stated that by 2020 the UK should be ‘the best place in the world to undertake research into dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases’. Our prestigious Division of Health Research is home to the Centre for Ageing Research and to a number of staff who are internationally recognised experts in dementia. The PhD in Dementia Studies is your chance to work with these world-leading academics on the production of a thesis that makes an original contribution to knowledge development within your area of professional practice.

Combining innovative distance learning and an annual Academy held at the University, this part-time, flexible degree will help you to gain deeper critical insight into the theories, research and practices relating to dementia.
