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.

The Science Foundation Year provides a scientific background customised to your needs, helping you to progress to the subsequent years of a Psychology degree programme at Keele. Our British Psychological Society accredited courses enable you to explore
why humans think, feel, communicate and act in the ways that they do.

At Keele you will find out what the latest research tells us about human behaviour
and learn how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in
our well-equipped labs using a range of techniques. The course is taught by staff who are actively engaged in research with
specialisms in social psychology, developmental psychology, cognition
and neuropsychology, biological psychology health and wellbeing and a
range of applied areas. The emphasis of the course is on understanding
how psychology impacts on everyday life; from developing a sense of
self and negotiating personal relationships to influencing judgments
about matters of global significance, such as climate change.
At Keele we aim to produce psychology graduates who are ready to
use their psychology skills and knowledge to make a real difference.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. The single, major and dual honours Psychology courses at Keele are
accredited by the British Psychological Society. Choosing one of these
courses is the first step towards becoming a Chartered Psychologist and
a requirement for further study and training for a career in psychology.
You could take up any number of very interesting careers in psychology,
perhaps working as a neuropsychologist or as a clinical, counselling,
educational, forensic, occupational or sports psychologist. Whatever
path you choose in your working life, the Keele Psychology degree aims
to develop a psychological perspective on human behaviour which is
valued in a huge range of careers.
Many of our graduates choose to pursue exciting careers beyond
psychology, including in education, health, social care, management,
marketing and many more.
