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 Education and Physics.

Education at Keele is distinctive because of its strong focus on contemporary
issues in education and policy making. Studying education means considering
its relationship to the economy, its historical evolution, its impact on people’s
life chances and identities, how education is organised, and how learners learn. Keele goes even further by placing education in a very contemporary
and even future focused context, exploring the ways in which the world
of education is changing and looking at education from philosophical,
historical, psychological, cultural and sociological perspectives. This
course examines changing ideas about childhood, learning, schooling
and education, and factors such as poverty, social policies and digital
technologies which impact on these.

Our undergraduate Education programme is not a teacher-training
course per se, but a study of education itself. However, the course
does open up a range of opportunities in settings from pre-school to
adult learning, as well as in a variety of other contexts. On graduating
you might work in the social services, in health, or in local or central
government. The course also sets you up well for further professional
study to qualify in areas such as teaching, social work or the legal

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.
