This single honours course has been developed to provide individuals who have a keen interest in health and wellbeing to build a rewarding career where they can promote health and wellbeing within different groups of people, or working in an environment where having an understanding of the issues affecting our health is important.

  • Research

We are proud to have been awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017; you will benefit from frequent support from experienced tutors and academics.

A blended approach to teaching and learning will allow you to develop your technical skills, theoretical understanding and opportunities to tailor your focus in the third year with an elective module. At Keele, we provide you with in-depth tutor support, to suit your needs, in a variety of areas including academic and employability; to ensure you receive the help needed to excel in your studies.

Teaching will be delivered by experts at Keele’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, based at the Clinical Education Centre within the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, as well as the main Keele campus where you will be part of our small, friendly and cosmopolitan community.

What will this mean for my future?
