Centre Visitors

The Life Course Centre has welcomed eminent visitors since 2014, for both short and long visits. Visitors have delivered specialised training, run workshops, provided mentoring, given public talks, and collaborated on major research projects.

We hope to be able to welcome visitors back to the Centre very soon, once national and international borders re-open and it is safe to travel.
