Founded more than 60 years ago on the belief that we meet the demands of a new kind of society, economy and world, our principles resonate now more than ever. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, many of our students and staff live, study and work here. It’s a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We operate on a human scale, providing people the space to think and plenty to do, with a vast array of clubs, societies, activities and volunteering opportunities.
What are/did you study?
I took the Cell and Tissue Engineering MSc after completing my undergraduate studies at Keele. My Masters course was much more medically-focused, as it looked at the useful applications of biology and material used within the industry.
I already knew Keele well from my undergraduate studies, so I knew it offered a great mix of a supportive learning environment and a strong social network. I
found the course offered exciting, cutting edge modules that are very hands on.
How are you funding your studies?
I funded the course myself through savings from work and help from my parents. Keele gave me a £1,000 reduction on tuition fees because I’d already studied my
undergrad there, which made it a bit of a bargain! Keele offered lots of advice throughout the year and notified me automatically about my fees reduction. They also run lots of bursaries depending on your circumstances.
What’s the best bit of the course?
My favourite part was the final aspect of the course – the practical based dissertation. Mine was centred on developing spinal implants that were composed of
collagen hydrogels, nanofibres and a range of neural cells. It brought together all the skills I’d learned.
Has it been worth it? What advice would you give to others?
My Masters was a one year course and has added so much value to my undergrad
studies. Given the variation in the modules available, I could work in NHS roles, lab work and academia all of which you come across during the course. I’d advise people to get stuck in and make sure they make the most of the practical lessons and social life at Keele.
