The Dementia Studies (Online) course from University of Stirling is run by a team of academic experts whose research has helped to shape dementia care policy worldwide. You’ll learn about the latest theories, innovations and best practice in supporting people with dementia – as well as gaining an overview of policy drivers and initiatives, and a grounding in academic and research skills. Our course also benefits from an advisory group of people with dementia, who support course development.
During your studies, you’ll become part of an international online community of fellow students and academics committed to improving dementia practice and the experience of people living with dementia.
With a student and alumni group that to date encompasses students from Europe, Asia, North America, the Middle East and Africa, and from professions spanning health, care, architecture and law, you will engage with a diverse range of professionals who are committed to improving the experiences of people living with dementia across varied regional contexts.
The course encourages collaborative, interdisciplinary and critical learning. It’s dedicated to creating leaders of change in dementia practice.
This course is for experienced professionals from all relevant disciplines and enables you to study while continuing to work in your existing post. Some of our graduates have moved to specialised posts, while others have secured a promotion, undertaken further research or become involved in training.
