Why study Health Sciences at Keele University?
All current teaching staff hold active NMC registration as either a nurse or midwife and have extensive experience as clinicians in practice. Academics from other Schools who contribute to the programme are registered with the appropriate professional bodies (e.g. GMC, HCPC, GPC).
The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences utilises modern teaching facilities, including skills labs and the anatomy suite where appropriate, to enhance and support the student learning experience. All facilities are equipped with computers, internet access and projection equipment. Rooms are designed to be flexible and can be used for larger groups, also more informally for small groups working together.
Learning resources available on the programme include:
- An extensive collection of materials relevant to postgraduate study held in both the main university library on Keele's main campus, and in the health library on the campus of Royal Stoke University Hospital. A number of relevant journals are also accessible online to all registered students and are accessible from anywhere in the world with a University username and password.
- The Keele Learning Environment (KLE) provides easy access to a wide range of learning resources including lecture notes and presentations, discussion boards and blogs, enabling students and tutors to discuss topics, access information about the programme and modules, and access other materials designed specifically for particular modules.
- Computers for student use are situated in both the main library and also in the health library.
Keele Postgraduate Association
Keele University is one of a handful of universities in the UK to have a dedicated students' union for postgraduate students. A fully registered charity, Keele Postgraduate Association serves as a focal point for the social life and welfare needs of all postgraduate students during their time at Keele.
Hugely popular, the KPA Clubhouse (near Horwood Hall) provides a dedicated postgraduate social space and bar on campus, where you can grab a bite to eat and drink, sit quietly and read a book, or switch off from academic life at one of the many regular events organised throughout the year. The KPA also helps to host a variety of conferences, as well as other academic and career sessions, to give you and your fellow postgraduates the opportunities to come together to discuss your research, and develop your skills and networks.
