Course Summary:
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. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The programme of modules is tailored to the student’s chosen degree route. After you have completed your Health Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Midwifery programme. Being a Midwife is a highly rewarding role as you’ll be responsible for ensuring both a safe and positive environment in all childbirth situations. Our programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, clinical skills and critical and reflective thinking required to provide excellent care for women and newborn babies. You will develop into an independent learner through a programme of study which combines classroom-based, directed and self-directed learning with full engagement in clinical care, under supervision, to women during their childbirth experience. In the first year, you will develop the foundation for a comprehensive understanding of the physiological, psychological, social, and public health dimensions of normal pregnancy and childbirth. You will gain insight into the importance of communication for effective caring and professional relationships and begin to explore research evidence as the basis for providing optimal care. This initial foundation will be built on as the course progresses and knowledge is developed about conditions that may complicate pregnancy, the impact of these on women, babies, and other family members and the skills and multidisciplinary teamwork required to manage them effectively. The final part of the programme will prepare you for assuming full responsibility as a qualified midwife.

With the largest campus in the UK, Keele University easily manages to fit everything that a student may need into a short walk away. But if do you need to go into the local towns, buses are available every 20 minutes that go all around the local areas. Because there are no large cities on your doorstep, the SU works tirelessly to put on amazing nights, including the 'Flirt' nights which are always popular. The uni is high-ranking in all the different league tables, and is one that values both education and research meaning that students are valued by well-informed professors.

    It has been very enjoyable and I would not hesitate to recommend Keele to anyone who wants a quieter and friendly campus.
