Natural Sciences

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. Keele brings together the study of diverse sciences in a rigorous but stimulating single honours course, which you can tailor to your own interests. You could find yourself exploring biosciences, forensic science, chemistry, psychology, physics, maths, environmental science, computer science, earth science and physical geography. You’ll begin by studying two core natural science subjects (chosen from a range in the physical sciences, biosciences and geosciences) plus a supporting science subject and a bespoke, interdisciplinary module. In your final year, you could stay with that broad base or specialise more in your chosen science. You could also choose to extend your degree programme to a four year undergraduate masters (MSci Natural Sciences). Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. A degree in Natural Sciences from Keele will open up a huge range of careers (not just in the sciences) as well as opportunities for higher 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.
