Established in 1949 by Lord Lindsay - the former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University - in a country still recovering from the Second World War, the University’s founding aim was to produce graduates who not only had the technical and specialist knowledge to move society forward, but who understood the social and political landscape that drove this need.
Our teaching excellence is renowned: underpinned by a high quality curriculum, delivered by inspiring academics, and surrounded by research that has a global impact.
As well as enabling our students to develop their academic expertise, we believe in educating the whole person, building skills for life, as well as for work. With that in mind we deliver a broad-based education in a dynamic environment, where debate, discussion and learning happens within the classroom and beyond.
Our research seeks to improve lives and address the most pressing challenges across our region, country, and world.
Our academics are actively studying matters of global importance: from food security, climate change and smart energy, to neglected tropical diseases, global health and sustainable futures.
It’s no wonder that 80% of our research is deemed world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework (2021).
We support Keele University students to find placements, internships, graduate jobs, and become more employable.
