Free online course on Dementia

University College London is running a free online course starting next week called The Many Faces of Dementia. This course already has thousands of other people around the world enrolled and the online community is very warm and welcoming.

In this free online course you’ll discover some of the key issues in dementia care and research by exploring four less common forms of dementia through the eyes of people affected by the condition, and world-leading experts at UCL. The course research into the signs, stages, symptoms and causes of less common forms can bring us closer to the aim of defeating dementia.

The only requirement is an interest in dementia, its effects on people and the brain.

We hope that this course will be of particular interest to:

- Anyone who works with people diagnosed with dementia

- People who have a friend or family member who has dementia

- People in the early stages of the disease

- Students with an interest in learning more about dementia
