Institute of Gerontology

We investigate the challenges of health and social care, as well as the social, economic and policy consequences of ageing populations in both developed and developing worlds. 

Founded in 1986, our Institute leads excellent research and teaching in critical areas for ageing societies and older people, including healthy ageing, long-term care, employment, social participation, age-friendly cities, grandparents, housing and social policy. 

Find out more about studying gerontology on our postgraduate courses page.
