Course Summary

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.At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Chemistry and Neuroscience.The chemistry course at Keele consistently attracts excellent student feedback and provides an innovative curriculum and high quality teaching. The variety of coursework items embedded within the course allow for the development of chemistry and transferable skills, giving our graduates excellent prospects. You’ll develop a solid foundation of chemical theory and practical skills, building to cover advanced concepts and contemporary issues in chemistry in later years. You can tailor your studies to reflect your interests, and learn how to pursue your own research. You’ll have hands-on experience with state-of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques, enjoy access to dedicated IT facilities and an excellent modern teaching laboratory. You’ll learn to use chemistry in problem solving, and to present your theories and findings confidently and imaginatively to your audiences through a range of media. Studying Neuroscience, you can explore the mystery of the human brain: the central nervous system, the impact of drugs upon it, and the molecular biology of diseases and disorders of the brain. Study Neuroscience at Keele and you'll learn how the brain works - and why it sometimes does not.You’ll discover how we learn and remember, how our brains control the body, and how the brain regenerates and repairs itself. You could study interesting disciplines such as neuroanatomy, neuropharmacology and neuropathology. Working in diverse ways, including in our modern labs, you’ll develop your independent research skills as you learn to acquire, interpret and analyse data from multiple sources. You’ll also understand how neuroscience can help us understand medical problems and improve the quality of life.The many opportunities offered by the Chemistry course will equip you to confidently and skillfully pursue your chosen career. You might work in the chemical industry, research or education; you could choose to become a research scientist, toxicologist, or analytical chemist; or you could choose an allied career such as patent law or scientific writing. Alternatively, the problem-solving nature of chemistry gives graduates the edge in industries where these skills are sought in a variety of employment areas from IT to marketing and accountancy. A degree in Neuroscience will open up exciting careers in sectors as varied as healthcare, scientific research, pharmacology, IT, publishing and more. You might choose to work as a research scientist in academia or the drug industry, or work as a clinical neuroscientist in the hospital sector. With further study, you might go on to become a clinical psychologist, psychiatrist, doctor, pharmacologist or systems analyst.
