Overview

You will learn from tutors with many years of experience in clinical, cultural and academic sectors. They are leaders in dementia research and have designed a course that emphasises innovation and creativity in its study of a range of dementia-related conditions. This will give you an in-demand range of skills and experiences that will help you to lead in the field of dementia care. 

On this MSc Dementia Care course at University of West London you will examine contemporary thinking and analyse current care and services. Your goal will be to build an evidence base for best practice. 

We emphasise the importance of creative approaches to research and development. There may be opportunities to work with input from artists and designers, as well as from scientists, to develop treatments that focus on the link between creativity and health. 

To this end, your studies at the Dementia Care Centre will include influences from a wide range of disciplines, including:

  • psychology
  • design
