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.
The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. The Health Foundation Year offers an opportunity for students to enter a degree course in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences who do not meet the necessary criteria for direct entry. This is often because they have not studied the subjects required or because they have gained non-traditional qualifications. The programme of modules is tailored to the student’s chosen degree route.
After you have completed your Health Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Health and Wellbeing course. This single honours course has been developed to provide individuals who have a keen interest in health and wellbeing to build a rewarding career where they can promote health and wellbeing within different groups of people, or working in an environment where having an understanding of the issues affecting our health is important.
The course will cover four themes which are:
Academic, Personal and Professional Development
Health and Wellbeing
Science of Health
We are proud to have been awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017; you will benefit from frequent support from experienced tutors and academics.
