Great! Would recommend Keele to everyone! I don't want to leave! Lectures are so supportive and I love my course, it feels like a second home to me! It's going by too fast.
Keele University is located in the Staffordshire countryside, in the heart of England, around five miles from Stoke-on-Trent. Its roots date back to 1949 when it was opened by the former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University. It recently rose six places up to 52nd in the Complete University Guide’s 2023 UK league tables.
It's situated on one of the largest campuses in England, a 600-acre countryside estate that has on it all you could want as a student. You’ll find woodland walks, a convenience store, pharmacy, post office, cafes, food and drink venues and more. The Students’ Union is a great place to get a drink, have dinner or party and it’s been played by many acts, including Stormzy, Ed Sheeran and Snoop Dogg.
Although the uni is nestled in the countryside, it’s within easy reach of several towns and cities. Neighbouring Newcastle-under-Lyme has bars, cafes and eateries, while the growing city Stoke-on-Trent is a short bus journey away. In Stoke, you’ll find a nightlife scene, as well as shopping opportunities, cinemas, theatres and museums. From Keele you’re also able to get to the bigger and more vibrant cities of Manchester and Birmingham in less than an hour.
