Founded more than 60 years ago to meet the demands of a new kind of society, economy and world, Keele University operates on a human scale, providing people with the space to think and plenty to do, with a vast array of clubs, societies, activities and volunteering opportunities.
Keele University successively ranks at the very top of student satisfaction surveys;
- 1st for Student Satisfaction (2014, 2015 and 2016 National Student Survey),
- 1st for Student Satisfaction with Course (Guardian University League Table 2017)
- 1st for employability (HESA, 2016),
- Times Good University Guide 'University of the Year for Student Experience Award' (Times, 2017).
Whatever your area of study, their distinctive and flexible approach to teaching and learning will open your mind to challenge and build a broader based knowledge. They teach in small groups, provide one-to-one access to academics and value the quality of their teaching as highly as their research.
Choosing to come to Keele University was honestly the best decision I have ever made. My first year was absolutely amazing, filled with the funniest memories. I've met a great bunch of interesting people, who I'm sure will be friends for a very long time. The university will do its best to give you all that you need to succeed or enjoy yourself - they will support you in whatever you wish to do. Love:Keele
