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.
It was only a few months between graduation and starting my PhD. Towards the end of my MSc and before my PhD started, the university had afforded me opportunities with the Keele Research, Innovation and Skills Partnership (KRISP) project, where I undertook two placements. I carried out paid research work for Rotarad Ltd (a firm looking to revolutionise the way we clean behind our radiators to improve indoor air quality) and McCamley Ltd (a vertical axis wind turbine company). These were great experiences to add to my CV, and gave me opportunity to disseminate my research knowledge, particularly with Rotarad, where I visited the Houses of Parliament to communicate the findings to the APPG for healthy homes and buildings.

After completing my internships I was offered a position at Cohens Chemists, where I had worked
part-time for a number of years. The role was Assistant Project Manager at the company’s head
office. The job involved working on multiple high-level projects across the business.
The experience in this role led me to a position at Ashfield Healthcare Communications as an
Account Executive, where I have the opportunity to really progress my career!
The course gave me an unrivalled experience, both academically and professionally, and I wouldn’t
be where I am now without the knowledge I gained from the course, and the fantastic opportunities
Since I started the course in January, I had to integrate into the group of students who had started in September. The most valuable things I’ve learned in Keele are independence and how to cooperate positively with others. These skills also help me a lot now when I am doing my job.
