Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.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 Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele.The 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 Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Adult Nursing degree. Our Adult Nursing degree programme adopts a contemporary person-centred approach to health care that prepares students to meet evolving health needs.Adult Nursing at Keele develops adult nurses who deliver excellent evidence-based practice in a range of care settings and who place the patient at the centre of decision making by promoting dignity, care, and compassion. Over your three years, you will develop the ability to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and monitor care safely and effectively. By taking a person-centred approach to care delivery, you will initially focus on meeting people's essential care needs and, as you progress through your second and third years, you will develop the skills and capabilities to assess, provide and manage the complex care needs of individuals and groups of people.Students’ clinical and academic skills are developed within a strong and established system of support through personal tutors in the school and clinical mentors in placements. To develop your skills in academic writing, reflection, critical thinking, and decision making, a small group approach to learning is adopted whereby you are supported by your personal tutor. This is complemented by lectures, online activities, individual tutorials, directed study, and skills-based learning in the school’s Clinical Skills Laboratories. Learning in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Keele is enhanced by superb classroom facilities, an excellent Health Library, computer suite, and established relationships with local primary and secondary health care providers.
