MSc in Dementia

In 2018 we introduced two new programmes to our Postgraduate Studies offering in the Centre for Gerontology & Rehabilitation. These programmes will provide healthcare professionals with the skills to expertly care for the person with dementia from diagnosis to end-of-life. Links to both are provided below and we would be very happy to talk to perspective students about these exciting new programmes.

What our Graduates say

Orla McGovern, MSc Dementia (2019)

I am the first ever graduate for the MSc Dementia from University College Cork, I am very proud to say!
I really enjoyed this course and it has helped me greatly to combine my clinical practice with the theory I learnt in the different modules. There was a good selection of modules to choose from and so you could tailor your module choice to your specific educational needs. In our busy work life’s the combination of online learning and in class teaching worked well giving you the opportunity to meet people on your course and share ideas but not having to attend class every week. If your area of interest you can be certain you will be supported and mentored by the dedicated academic team running the program. I left with a solid understanding of the value of research and a comprehensive ability to interpret it correctly.
