Institute for Ageing


Ageing features prominently within medical undergraduate training (MBBS), offering students opportunities to benefit from the strength and breadth of research in this field.

Undergraduate training is also available through two highly successful modules. A 2nd year option Biology of Ageing and a 3rd year option Clinical Ageing, both within the Biomedical Sciences degree programme.

A number of undergraduate courses contain ageing-related teaching, some of these are highlighted below:
