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 both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Chemistry and Physics. 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.

In 2016, Keele’s Physics and Astrophysics graduates have given us a
100% rating for overall satisfaction with their courses. Study Physics at
Keele and you’ll learn to apply mathematics and computing to formulate
and solve a wide range of physical problems. You’ll use mathematics to describe the physical world, and learn to plan
and conduct investigations before reporting your results. Your course
will be informed by the research interests of your teaching staff: primarily
astrophysics and condensed matter physics. Regular laboratory sessions
will enable you to investigate unfamiliar phenomena and acquire
specialist techniques, but you’ll also develop invaluable transferable
skills such as communication, IT and interpersonal skills. We operate
an open-door policy which enables you to have excellent and flexible
access to staff to seek advice or feedback on your work. Take this
course as a single honours or combined honours and your degree will
be accredited by the Institute of Physics.

A Physics degree from Keele will prepare you for many different careers,
which need not be directly related to physics.
You could take up all sorts of roles in industry, management, and public
services. You might work as a research scientist, medical physicist,
software engineer, geophysicist or radiation practitioner, or you might
branch out and become a science writer, chartered accountant, patent
lawyer, IT consultant or air traffic controller. Many graduates go on to
study at master’s or doctorate level.
