Natural Sciences - 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. You’ll begin by studying two core natural science subjects (chosen from the range available across the physical sciences, biology and geosciences), plus a supporting science subject and a bespoke, interdisciplinary module. In your final year, you could stay with a broad base or choose to specialise in one of your chosen sciences. This reflects a recent programme modification. You could also choose to extend your degree programme to a four year undergraduate Master's (MSci Natural Sciences). In addition, the Grand Challenges lectures will introduce you to eminent speakers and their perspectives on the complex questions that face us in the world. You’ll consider the contribution of Natural Sciences here and work with Liberal Arts students in learning sets to develop fresh responses. A degree in Natural Sciences from Keele will open up a wide range of careers (not just in the sciences), as well as opportunities for further study. Employers value natural sciences graduates because of the breadth of their understanding, and their independent and creative approach to problem solving. You’ll also have an excellent set of transferable skills, in areas such as communication, teamwork and the ability to assimilate and use information quickly and effectively. The four year MSci degree is ideally suited for those wanting to pursue a career in academic or commercial research. Keele has a long history of interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning, and a founding commitment to the development of graduates with the skills to address complex problems in changing workplaces.
