Professor James Vickers and his team at the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre, University of Tasmania, are undertaking a world-first study on the potential of tertiary education later in life to boost brain plasticity and protect against ageing-related cognitive decline and dementia.
Choose which subject you are interested in, apply to the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and, as a participant in the Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project, you may qualify for a scholarship to cover the HECS costs for one 12.5% unit (conditions apply).
If you fulfil the eligibility criteria and enrol at UTAS you will also receive a free annual comprehensive assessment (and feedback) of your cognitive functions.
The Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project is conducted by the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre
