Gerontology Studies

Are you a registered health professional who wants to enhance your career options, and do you have a passion for working with older adults in a variety of settings? A specialisation in Gerontology could be your perfect career move.

  • With a focus on interprofessional strategies that optimise wellness of the older adult, you will align your professional skills and knowledge to contemporary approaches in health and wellness for older people.
  • By studying our gerontology program, you will be securing your future in a growing field: as reflected in predictions that the number of Australians aged 65 and over will more than double by 2054-55, with 1 in 1,000 Australians projected to be aged over 100. (Intergenerational Report 2015). This suggests an increasing demand for health professionals with Gerontology specialisation to optimise wellness of this population group in any health context. 

  • Our Gerontology programs are offered via distance education so you can fit study around your life.
