Attend the lectures for the Newcastle University NUAGE course.
VOICE members are invited to a series of evening lectures that contribute to a Newcastle University course about ageing (NUAGE). This course is for undergraduate students from different academic backgrounds, including arts and sciences courses, and aims to introduce students to the importance of ageing in the 21st century.
The lecture series is delivered by Newcastle University academic staff who are experts in their field, with topics ranging from the importance of keeping active to the value of the arts in later life. We aim to create a mixed audience of students, members of the public and staff with time following the lecture for questions and discussion.
You are welcome to attend as many of the lectures as you wish but due to limited places, registration is essential. To book your place select the date(s) you would like to attend on and click Register.
