Human Biology with Science Foundation Year

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 Human Biology course. The Human Biology course starts with a core first year with option modules becoming a major part of the course in years 2 and 3. A number of modules in the second and third year address issues that relate to our ever changing lifestyles and have a global perspective, including nutrition, advances in scientific research and technologies and parasitology that have improved our understanding of health and disease. The multidisciplinary approach to Human Biology is supported by input to the programme from staff with diverse expertise in wide ranging aspects of Human Biology including Medical School staff and research and clinical staff at Keele University, University Hospitals of North Midlands and the Guy Hilton Research Centre (affiliated to Keele University and NHS - a world-leading centre for translational research), physiotherapists, geographers and conservation biologists. You can add a year with an Applied Life Sciences work placement or one year Study Abroad Placement between the second and third years.
