At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Education and Physics.
Physics at Keele is consistently rated highly in the National Student Survey, (No. 1 for Physics in 2016 and 2017, with 100% overall satisfaction). And, if you
have a passion for teaching, this course is for you. Physics is a fundamental, curiosity-driven discipline, with applications in many other areas of science and technology. You will gain an understanding of the subject fundamentals, including quantum mechanics, relativity and electromagnetism, and will apply this
knowledge to solve problems, plan investigations and report your work.
By taking modules in Education, you will learn how social, political and economic factors may impact on the application of physics knowledge in schools. You will explore present and future developments in education and professional practice, which will prepare you for a career in teaching.
When you graduate, you might choose to do a PGCE to become a teacher. Employers value numerate, versatile graduates who can communicate. With a Keele Education and Physics degree you could take up roles as a medical physicist, geophysicist or enter the space, telecommunications or nuclear industries. You may instead find employment as a science writer, chartered accountant, IT consultant, teacher, educational developer or curriculum innovator. If you take electives in modern languages, you may have the opportunity to graduate with an enhanced degree title, for example, 'Education and Physics with competency in Japanese' and teach abroad. Many of our graduates go onto further study at Master's/PhD level.
