Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

Keele’s award-winning teaching and research span the wide diversity
of chemistry, helping you to develop subject knowledge and transferable
skills in a supportive learning environment. You’ll develop a solid foundation of theory and practical skills, building
to cover advanced concepts and contemporary issues in chemistry in
later years. You can tailor your studies to reflect your interests, and learn
how to pursue your own research. You’ll have hands-on experience with
state-of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques, and enjoy access
to dedicated IT facilities. You’ll learn to use chemistry in problem solving,
and to present your theories and findings confidently and imaginatively
to your audiences. You could even spend a semester or year abroad. If
you study our single honours or major route programme, your degree will
be accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The many opportunities offered by this course will equip you to
confidently and skilfully pursue your chosen career. You might work in
industry, research or education; you could choose to become a chemical
engineer, research scientist, toxicologist, patent lawyer, analytical
chemist or technical writer. Many students go on to higher study after
a first degree in chemistry, allowing them to specialise in an area of
interest such as analytical, forensic, synthetic or materials chemistry
and eventually work in a wide range of other specialist roles.

Our Environmental Science course at Keele draws on the expertise
of scientists within the disciplines of life sciences, chemical sciences
and geosciences to emphasise the role and importance of scientific
understanding and practical skills in the analysis and management
of environmental problems. Alongside studying topical global
environmental issues, you will have the opportunity to develop a
broad range of practical, laboratory and field-based skills to take
into future employment. You’ll also have the opportunity to do
fieldwork overseas, gain valuable work experience or study abroad
at one of our partner institutions.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Environmental
Sciences (IES), meaning students can gain free membership of the
IES to support their personal and professional development in the
environmental sector.

All organisations, from private business to local government, increasingly
need to engage with environmental issues; hence this is one of the
fastest growing areas of employment opportunities.
Through completion of a reflective portfolio, you will also have the
opportunity to gain accreditation from the Institute of Leadership
and Management alongside your Keele degree.
