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 Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved Mental Health Nursing programme. As mental health awareness becomes increasingly prevalent in society, we prepare students to work with individuals of all ages, with a range of mental health experiences, in diverse settings. You will develop strong communication skills which will be fostered throughout the programme by rehearsal in the classroom and feedback from mentors in placements to prepare you for this demanding role.Our programme adopts an approach to learning and teaching which focuses on service users using a recovery approach and encourages you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for the safe delivery of effective mental health care. All modules integrate theory and practice elements which contribute to admission to the Professional Register. The development of clinical skills to support physical health is an integral part of the programme and is supported in practice by mentors and in the excellent Clinical Skills Laboratories by experienced lecturers. Placements for our mental health nursing programme are undertaken in a variety of settings, working with a mentor alongside social workers, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other members of the multi-disciplinary team. This will help you experience and prepare for a number of careers within this fieldStudent support is a priority, and you will be allocated a personal tutor and have access to campus-based academic advice services. Learning and teaching are delivered through a variety of strategies including lectures, seminars, and tutorials, often facilitated by service users and carers. IT-based exercises and presentations are also used to encourage work-relevant skills. Assessment is undertaken through using a variety of strategies including essay and examination and in practical laboratory and clinical situations.
