World-leading research

Keele is helping to change the world for the better by engaging in cutting-edge research. We’re tackling some of society’s most urgent problems, including ageing, global health and renewable energy.

Universities are assessed independently on the quality of their research by the Research Excellence Framework (REF). We’re really proud that 97% of our research was deemed to be world-leading, or of international importance, in the REF 2014.

Thanks to our leading reputation for research, Keele degrees are highly regarded by employers and by other universities to which you might apply for postgraduate study, anywhere in the world.
