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 proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The Social Science Foundation Year provides you with a chance to sample social science subjects at university level before making a final choice of honours courses, to study intensive modules which provide the requisite background for specific honours courses for those without the necessary qualifications, provides access for non-traditionally qualified students to a wide range of social science courses, and provides a broad grounding in academic principles and methods. Keele is a leading UK law school offering interdisciplinary qualifying law degrees. This degree will provide the knowledge and professional exemptions you need to train to become a solicitor or barrister. On Law with Politics you will learn about the theory and practice of law and develop an understanding of its social, political, historical and comparative contexts. Practical opportunities to develop you skills include client interviewing, mooting (practising oral arguments) and as a Community Legal Companion with our innovative CLOCK programme. You will explore the importance of politics in society, considering the development of political policy and the principles of freedom and equality. This degree will provide excellent preparation for a wide range of careers. You’ll study both law and politics as distinct subjects, but you’ll consider where they intersect as disciplines. This programme is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board and is a qualifying law degree, enabling you to train as a solicitor or barrister. It also opens up a range of other careers, some requiring further study or training, including: the police, probation, prison or courts services, human rights, transnational law, central or local government, and as an assistant or researcher for an MP.
