    • About Stoke On Trent

      In an area world famous for Sir Stanley Matthews (ask your Granddad) and Wedgewood pottery (ask your Gran), Stoke on Trent is home to two campuses for the artier faculties of Staffordshire University and the closest city of note for students of Keele University.

      The city has all the usual big chain stores and shops to spend your student dollar, and a host of pubs, bars and clubs for ‘study breaks’. The live music scene is surprisingly impressive, with local venues and the SU Stoke-branch bringing in the latest bands with some notorious crowds and atmosphere. 

      A short ride from Stoke, and pretty much in the middle of nowhere, Keele University’s campus spreads across a 617 acre campus - the biggest in the country! The uni offers an astonishingly broad choice of courses, allowing an eclectic variety in joint-degree programmes. Over 90% of the student population here take joint honours, with almost three quarters living in the self contained campus. 

      Some students might get the itch for city living but the benefits of Keele living is a very friendly, communal feel and the bars in each halls of residence and across the uni prove very lively for drinking and dancing, with plenty of gossip the morning after.
