Welcome to Keele University
9 April 2022
Founded in 1949 by A.D. Lindsay, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Keele University has always been different from other universities and, over seventy years later, we still are.
A degree from Keele is designed to provide students with essential knowledge in their chosen field of study, as well as developing them as individuals with key skills to prepare them for life beyond university. 96% of our graduates were in a job or further study six months following graduation (DLHE,2017). Keele has some of the most satisfied university students in the UK and are consistently ranked highly for student satisfaction; we are consistently in the Top 10 for Student Experience and Student Satisfaction.
Students come to Keele because of the
- academic reputation (Gold in the 2017 TEF)
- excellence of the research (97% of research classified as world leading in the latest UK REF)
- beautiful and spacious campus (largest in the UK with over 600 acres of landscaped parkland, fields, woodlands, and lakes).
Despite its size, the self-contained campus has a genuine, friendly student and staff community and offers everything you need to ensure it’s your home from home. Keele is proud of its multi-cultural and diverse student community and welcomes students from over 100 countries. There are approx. 11,000 students at Keele with 2800 living in on-campus accommodation - we guarantee accommodation for international students if booked before the deadline.
