Environment and Sustainability with Science Foundation Year - Keele University

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 Science Foundation Year provides students with the opportunity to study, in a university setting, the skills and subject knowledge required to progress to a wide range of science degrees. This course provides a scientific background customised to your needs as well as enhanced study skills. A choice of modules is available from the life, physical, geographical and environmental sciences; mathematics; computing and psychology. After you have completed your Science Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Environment and Sustainability course. For society to tackle the environmental and sustainability problems we now face, we need people who can grapple with both the scientific and human aspects of those issues. That’s why this flexible and innovative course is taught across three different faculties, integrating a range of disciplines, with a wide range of options. You will have the opportunity to develop a broad theoretical basis and a range of practical, laboratory and field-based skills across natural and social science methodologies, as well as developing expertise in Geographic Information Systems and statistical analysis. In addition to using Keele’s 600 acre campus as a living laboratory for environmental and sustainability research, you’ll also have the opportunity to complete fieldwork overseas, gain valuable work experience, engage with environmental professionals or study abroad at one of our partner institutions.
