Welcome to our 2020 virtual open day
Welcome to the School of Life Sciences at Keele University, we're sorry that we can't meet you in person today but hope that the information we're providing on our ‘virtual open day’ will help you to make an informed choice about your future.
It is a very challenging yet exciting time to become a Life Scientist. Whether you are interested in Biology, Biochemistry, Human Biology, Neuroscience or Biomedical Science, the world needs Bioscientists more than ever for their skills, knowledge and advancements in research, to help meet the future changes to our world.
Please get in touch with any questions, you can email, call us, contact us on social media or chat to our staff and students to find out more.
Central Science Laboratory
"By covering all areas/departments relevant to Biomedical Science and then allowing choice into a broader spectrum of interest it helps to provide students with a better idea of where they want to go afterwards. The laboratories available were always well equipped, especially now since the building expansion, allowing an adequate insight into current testing methods. I was given opportunities to go on day visits to local hospitals, looking across various departments, which was very useful in getting a feel for the actual field."
"I would recommend this course as it enables you to gain a broad perspective of different aspects of human biology - from studying cells and biological molecules to learning about whole organ systems."
"Since starting my degree in BSc (Hons) Neuroscience and Psychology in 2015, I proceeded to get involved and lead various societies and gain experience related to my course, including being elected as a Student Academic Representative (StAR). I became the Lead School StAR for Life Sciences in 2016 as well as the Faculty Lead StAR for Natural Sciences and had the chance to represent my disciplines at various university conferences. I also secured a bespoke work placement experience at a local hospital including scrubbing in on neurosurgeries, academic meetings, and specialist clinics."
