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. 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 Biology and Chemistry. Keele takes a broad approach to biology, examining the diversity of life and its evolution from the geological past and exploring the behaviour and physiology of whole organisms. In Chemistry you’ll have hands-on experience with state- of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques, and enjoy access to dedicated IT facilities.We offer a carefully designed first-year curriculum designed to help students make the transition into university study with a high level of personal support. Biology at Keele focuses on the amazing world of organisms – from how they’ve evolved to their relationships with the environment and each other. You’ll consider the complexity of biological processes and mechanisms at molecular, cellular, organismal and ecosystem levels, exploring related philosophical and ethical issues. You’ll sample, record and analyse data in the field and in our excellent labs, and learn how biology can help to improve the quality and sustainability of life. In Chemistry, you will develop a solid foundation of theoretical and practical skills, building to cover advanced concepts and contemporary issues in chemistry in later years. You can tailor your studies to reflect your interests and learn how to pursue your own research. You’ll have hands-on experience with state-of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques and enjoy access to dedicated IT facilities. You will learn to use chemistry in problem solving and to present your theories and findings confidently and imaginatively to your audiences. You can add a year with an Applied Life Sciences work placement or one year Study Abroad Placement between the second and third years. You might work as a research scientist, as an environmental consultant, conservationist, in quality control areas of the food industry, in the pharmaceutical industry or as a scientific writer. If you choose to do an Applied Life Sciences Placement you’ll graduate with the advantage of a significant level of work experience in biology to take to potential employers.
