Posted on 27 April 2015

Keele University has five subjects listed in the UK's top 20 in the Complete University Guide published today. Two of them - Medicine and Physiotherapy - are placed in the top 10.

American Studies and Nursing at Keele were both ranked 12th in the guide and Pharmacy was in 13th position.

Keele University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Foskett, said: "It is very pleasing that five of our subjects have been ranked so highly in this guide. This is an excellent result for Keele that recognises the quality of the education we offer. We continue to do well in the National Student Survey for overall student satisfaction and our student employability remains extremely high.”

The Complete University Guide is the only UK university guide published wholly on-line and free to access. Fully independent and autonomous, the guide aims to offer university applicants comprehensive, accurate and relevant information on university courses which best fit their needs.

Dr Bernard Kingston, principal author of, said: "The league tables, taken with the rankings for specific subjects, offer would-be students an accurate and independent guide to the UK university system.

"They should not be used in isolation but alongside all the other advice and information in the Guide. Its tables are recognised for their stability and consistency, and this year once again demonstrates this."
