Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
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’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Mathematics performs strongly for student satisfaction. We pride ourselves on providing a friendly and supportive environment for students. We offer a carefully designed first-year curriculum and a multi-layered student support structure designed to help students make the transition into University study. Our Integrated Master's course provides students the opportunity to develop specialist subject knowledge and skills to progress to a career in academia or industry. This course adds a fourth year at Master’s level to our bachelor’s degree, in which you will study specialist modules based on your own interests as well as your tutors’ research interests. Building on what you learned in your first three years, you will develop higher-level skills both in mathematics and in your approaches to problem solving and the communication of your solutions to diverse audiences. When studying for a Master's at Keele you will spend more time in self-directed study, becoming an independent learner, thinker and researcher. You will deliver a substantial project, write mathematics to a professional standard and explore how mathematicians contribute to academia and industry. You will have learned to approach problem solving in unfamiliar and complex environments, perhaps where your access to information is limited, and to communicate your conclusions clearly to a range of audiences including non-mathematicians. These valuable skills are highly attractive to employers in an extremely wide range of fields. Your Master’s degree will also be an excellent springboard for pursuing further studies at doctoral level.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
