Education / Teacher Training, Graduate
(5)·By Beth E·Education / Teacher Training· Jul 2021
The most incredible experience, top 5 of my whole life! I met the most incredible friends and settled into the most amazing university life. Keele really is the life and soul of the party and I loved every single second of what Keele had to offer during freshers week (and for the 4 years that followed!) - The best! I stayed in halls for two/four years I was at Keele: my first year and my third year. I loved staying in halls. I was able to make the place my own (pictures hung up, things stuck on the wall etc etc.). I was extremely happy with the people I lived with and I felt content with my environment and surroundings. The university accommodation is close to the campus and therefore lectures etc. Everyone is very friendly and I had the time of my life! The library was fantastic! It is HUGE. I would enter the library and spend a lot of time in there. I was pleased with the resources offered to me and the space in there is insane (and extremely modern too!). The classrooms are comfortable, modern and spacious, which I was happy with. The SU ... the SU was my favourite place! It is the BEST night out. Everyone knows everyone and there is therefore such a community feel to the place. Everything is extremely well priced and the food on offer is also incredible. The SU was my favourite place on campus by far - some of the best memories of my entire life were had in that place, amazing. I LOVED my course (Education and film studies, followed by a PGCE at Keele to study primary education). The lectures were helpful, funny, highly intelligent and inspiring people. They offered 1:1 support on a regular basis and would always be there for guidance both with regards to academia, but also for social and emotional support too. I learned so much on my course and achieved a very respected First Class Honours degree. The course I took truly shaped my experience at Keele, the offer of exam based modules and modules which heavily relied on coursework enables the course to be catered for all. I found the learning aspect very fun and very helpful in shaping my future career in teaching. I am very grateful to Keele for this. I LOVE the city. I loved the city that much I actually decided to stay here and began my career in teaching here too. There are amazing nightclubs, restaurants, cinemas ... everything! There is always something to do. Lovely walks around the Keele campus and local areas such as Trentham Gardens. Escape rooms, tea rooms, a Ninja Warrior course, the list goes on and on. Keele is also close to Liverpool and Manchester, just a train journey away! The best place.
