At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ 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 itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
As mental health awareness becomes increasingly prevalent in society, we prepare students to work with individuals of all ages, with a range of mental health
experiences, in diverse settings. You will develop strong communication skills which will be fostered throughout the programme by rehearsal in the classroom
and feedback from mentors in placements to prepare you for this demanding role.
Our programme adopts an approach to learning and teaching which focuses on service users using a recovery approach, and encourages you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for the safe delivery of effective mental health care. All modules integrate theory and practice elements which contribute to admission to the Professional Register. The development of clinical skills to support physical health is an integral part of the programme and is supported in practice by mentors and in the excellent Clinical Skills Laboratories by experienced lecturers.
Student support is a priority, and you will be allocated a personal tutor and have access to campus-based academic advice services. Learning and teaching are delivered through a variety of strategies including lectures, seminars, and tutorials, often facilitated by service users and carers. IT based exercises and presentations are also used to encourage work relevant skills. Assessment is undertaken through using a variety of strategies including essay and examination and in practical laboratory and clinical situations.
Placements are undertaken in a variety of settings, working with a mentor alongside social workers, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other members of the multi-disciplinary team. This will help you experience and prepare for a number of careers within this field.
