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.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Chemistry and Human Biology. 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.

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 Human Biology course is ideal if you’re interested in biology but are looking for
a particular focus on the human body and how we’ve adapted to our
environment. This course provides a broad understanding of the physiology
of the body’s major systems as well as human health and disease. You might explore the impact of nutrition and the environment on health,
how humans in turn impact on the environment, and human evolution.
Keele’s multidisciplinary approach puts human biology in context, so
you’ll have input from experts ranging from clinicians to nutritionists,
physiotherapists, geographers and conservation biologists.

Graduates from this programme have opportunities in a wide range
of fields, with career paths in science, health, industry or the media.
You might become a nutritionist, dietitian, health promotion specialist,
clinical molecular geneticist, counsellor, adult nurse, sports therapist,
or technical author. Alternatively, you could pursue opportunities in
postgraduate research, teacher training, occupational therapy,
journalism, nursing or medicine.
