Want to enhance your career with specialist knowledge and skills in ageing? 

Australia's ageing population has major implications for governments at all levels. How we approach the challenges of our changing society will be determined in great part by policy experts and planners with specialist ageing expertise, who can create effective plans for this shifting demographic.

The University of Melbourne offers a suite of subjects designed to produce leaders with advanced knowledge in ageing issues.

Delivered online, you can tailor your study to meet your professional development goals, with single subject study right through to a masters available.

There are a broad range of subjects available including Ageing Health and Human Services, which explores the theoretical and practical aspects of designing and delivering services as policies shift in relation to aged care; and Ageing in Society, where students learn about ageing from a range of contexts including how ageism and older people are portrayed in government policy.

Applications are now open to commence study in January.
