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.
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.
It’s a stunning university with beautiful views. The lecturers and teaching fellows are really supportive and will always endeavor to help you. However, the parking at the university is atrocious. I have paid £100 for a parking permit and on some occasions I haven’t been able to find a space!
Keele uni is overall a great uni. It has small class sizes making lectures good and engaging and the campus is beautiful. However, travel on and off of campus is awful the buses are ridiculous and I have frequently been late because of their poor service. There really isn’t much of a night life which was great for my grades but not so much for my social life. Overall, the academic portion of my uni time was great but the lifestyle was mediocre and boring.
