Keele University

Keele University

Keele University is renowned for its exciting approach to higher education, beautiful campus, strong community spirit and excellent student life.

It was the first new United Kingdom university of the 20th century, established with degree giving powers in 1949 as the University College of North Staffordshire. University status, as the University of Keele, followed in 1962.

We offer a special student experience. Most full-time students and many staff live on campus and there’s excellent entertainment every night of the week. Our graduates obtain some of the best academic and employment success rates in the UK.

The University provides high quality teaching across a wide range of academic and vocational subjects. Most of our students study for one of more than 500 Dual Honours programmes, where you can gain an honours degree level qualification in two subjects. We also have single honours degrees in American Studies, Environment and Sustainability, Geography, Law, Mathematics, Music Technology, Politics and in Medicine and other health-related subjects.

Keele is the UK’s largest integrated campus university and occupies a 617 acre estate. Its central feature, 19th century Keele Hall, has Grade II registration with English Heritage.

Our central location within the UK means that we are easily accessible from anywhere in the country. With our Science Park, conference facilities and academic activities, we make a major contribution to our local Staffordshire economy. With a turnover in excess of £102million, and a total staff of some 1,700, the University generates around £130m of business in the region.
