I enjoy my time at Keele and I believe the university does well at keeping students engaged. I would recommend this university, especially their societies. The women’s football team in particular as this was the club where I dedicated my membership. I believe the sporting opportunities are well advertised as well as any events going on at the Uni, via the social media pages.View more

I could not recommend Keele university enough, it was the best decision I ever made.View more
Keele University is a great place for higher education, not only ranked as a top university, but it also cares for our planet. Keele University provides its energy sources from windmills and solar panels and these are run by teachers and students themselves. Ensuring that you feel involved in the move of having a greener planet. The campus is huge and has many different areas to explore from historical buildings to vast green spaces. It is a great place to be if you want to get out of bustling city life to a quieter living. Not to leave out the amazing student union events that will give you a homage of the city nightlife.View more
Keele University is set back in the Staffordshire countryside, but it isn’t shy of facilities and great lecturers. My time at University has been in the middle of the pandemic and for me, the lecturers and the University have been understanding and cooperative towards any issues that the pandemic may have caused for students. The lecturers have brilliant communication with students, assignments are always given in good time, along with replies to emails almost immediately. They are always very helpful with assignments if the students are facing any problems. The university sends regular emails and updates regarding events happening at the university, whether this is strike action, social events or internships we can apply for. I think the university overall can be slightly disorganised when it comes to timetables as we do not receive our timetables till a few days before the semester starts and I think receiving the timetables earlier would benefit the students more, especially students who have part-time jobs, like myself. The course structure for Keele is one of the reasons I choose this University over my other choices, as you are able to choose modules from other subject areas to gain a wider range of skills and knowledge upon leaving University. There is also a wide range of assignment types, such as essays, reviews, podcasts and presentations. Keele takes pride in Student Voice and shows the importance of listening to their students, for example, in my first year, we also had exams but from listening to the students in the English Department, the university agreed and decided exams were not necessary for English Students, therefore, took exams from the English Syllabus. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Keele University and would recommend Keele, particularly if a student is interested in a smaller University, or a mature student like myself. I don’t live on campus, I live at home with my family as I am a mature student and I wasn’t too interested in student life but if I was applying for student life, I am not sure if Keele would be as appealing. I applied just for education and Keele has exceeded my expectations.View more
I enjoyed living and studying on campus. The campus was beautiful and well maintained. The classes were often small seminar-based and it was a very engaging way to learn and hear other viewpoints by discussing others’ viewpoints. The dissimilarity of my two subjects gave me a wide range of subjects to choose from and elective courses to engage with.View more
I will start by saying that I unequivocally loved Keele University. Despite its remote location there was a variety of students and teaching staff, with interests across the board being represented by the Student Union in societies. The campus is gorgeous and made a great change for a city girl like me, although I never really got used to the sporadic bus service to the nearest town!
I definitely think the experience depends on your degree programme. I studied English and the department was amazing, supportive, interesting and passionate about their subject. The same can’t be said for all departments, unfortunately, so look up your potential lecturers! See if they are interested in topics you like and if they’ve won things like teaching awards.
Overall I would highly recommend Keele University. As the campus is so isolated there is a real community feel, and the ‘Keele Bubble’ is something you can’t get at any other uni.View more
The campus is huge and very beautiful – the highlight has to be Keele Woods which is enormous. The SU is great – it holds really good club nights and there are some nice chill out areas. There is a good choice of food however it isn’t the cheapest.
I am a dual honours STEM student and can say the teaching varies – one of my subjects has excellent teaching with lots of information on careers and other things. The other subject is still great, but not as good.
Keele’s campus gives a strong sense of community and it seems that everyone knows everyone. The students are friendly and tend to be from all over the country and world.
The campus is very convenient and has a Costcutter, farmer’s market, newsagents etc. Getting in and out of campus can be a pain with only one bus going into town and it is impossible to get a parking permit if you have a car and live on or near campus. Newcastle has typical activities to do like cinema, bars etc and there is a big shopping centre in Hanley.View more
I would highly recommend keele to anyone, the university has an amazing campus and there is always lots to take part in or be involved with. There are many unions that students can join to feel more involved in student life, also the SU will always host events which allow you to meet new people. One personal downside for me is the library, there are not nearly enough computers for the vast majority of students who attend keele, often students struggle to get a computer, particularly during busy hand in periods.View more
