Higher Education Courses

Highlighting dementia related specialist and higher education courses

One of the aims of Dementia Researcher is to encourage people to consider a career in dementia research. Completing an MSc or other further dementia education, is a great way to prepare yourself for further study at PhD level, to help you progress within your clinical field or to gain dementia or neuroscience knowledge that can be combined with your own field of study - be that in the creative arts, maths, coding, communications or something else.

Below is a list of UK or Online based Dementia and Neuroscience related MSc and other education courses, you can filter these by field of study and institution, using the check boxes.
