What will I learn?

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 Biology and Computer Science.Our exciting Biology programme provides a broad and fundamental understanding of the world of organisms and is taught in the beautiful surroundings of Keelecampus, with opportunities to visit and study or work at partner institutions in Europe and Malaysia. Biology at Keele focuses on the amazing world of organisms – from how they’ve evolved to their relationships with the environment and each other. Keele takes a broad approach to biology, examining the diversity of life and its evolution from the geological past. You’ll consider the complexity of biological processes and mechanisms at molecular, cellular, organismal and ecosystem levels, exploring related philosophical and ethical issues. You’ll sample, record and analyse data in the field and in our excellent labs, and learn how biology can help to improve the quality and sustainability of life. Complete this course over three years, or add an extra year with anApplied Life Sciences work placement or a one year Study Abroad Placement between the second and third year. The Computer Science aspects of the course offers a first-rate environment with dedicated computing labs open 24/7 and cutting edge equipment in our MakerSpace. You’ll study research informed modules that relate to work being carried out within the School. Our high quality teaching and support score highly in the National Student Survey (2016). Our excellent central location is ideal for industrial placements, with over 40 companies situated on the Keele Science Park alone. In a mixture of interactive lectures and computer lab based sessions, you’ll learn to use technology to create new opportunities and to solve a wide range of problems, benefiting every aspect of society from the home to business, government and beyond. Our teaching is informed by our cutting- edge research, and also reflects what’s happening now in industry. This includes areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer games development, human-computer interaction, software engineering, web development, mobile application development, evolutionary systems and cybersecurity. Combined Honours students can follow a set of modules providing a specialism in information systems, smart systems, or creative computing.Biology at Keele offers both breadth and depth of knowledge, preparing you for a range of directly or indirectly related careers. You might work as a research scientist, as an environmental consultant, conservationist, in quality control areas of the food industry, in the pharmaceutical industry or as a scientific writer. If you choose to do an Applied Life Sciences Placement you will graduate with the advantage of a significant level of work experience in biology to take to potential employers. Our Computer Science degrees build the essential skills which are in demand from employers looking for systems analysts, programmers, web/app developers, interface designers, data scientists, software engineers and consultants. You’ll graduate with a wide range of computing and employability skills plus a highly developed approach to problem solvin
