Head of Student Records & Awards - Keele University



Keele is ranked Top 10 in England for Overall Student Satisfaction (broad based public universities, NSS 2021).

An Education that Inspires Keele offers distinctive programmes and a learning environment that enables our students to make the most of their time at University.

The University is justly proud of its students and alumni, who set themselves ambitious goals as they seek to make a positive impact on the world around them. Keele was ranked 2nd of all broad-based English universities in the National Student Survey 2019 – out of over 100 higher education institutions. This is the seventh time in eight years that Keele has been ranked in the top three in England for student satisfaction, demonstrating our consistent commitment to delivering an outstanding student experience – year in, year out. We are committed to providing opportunities for all those who can demonstrate the determination to succeed at the University irrespective of their circumstances or background. We offer our students a supportive community and provide financial support when appropriate through generous bursaries and scholarships. Originally a University that offered only interdisciplinary options and an integrated Foundation Year, we have now evolved into an institution where a third of our students continue to study two or more disciplines to completion. We have maintained a thriving Foundation Year, providing pathways to inspirational education that we are proud to offer.

Our programmes are innovative, inspirational and delivered by exceptional staff, with outstanding commitment to high-quality education provision and student-centred experiences. We have extensive outreach and widening participation activity, including being lead institution of one of the 29 OfS-funded NCOP schemes; Higher Horizons+. Colleagues across the institution work with thousands of school-aged students, their parents and teachers, giving guidance on higher education choices and delivering aspiration-raising activities both on and off campus. The campus offers a wide range of co-curricular activities which are an important part of our broad degree offering, which extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. With 12,500 students and 2,000 staff living and working on the Keele campus, we are the size of a small town. We have a strong postgraduate community, and have a clear strategy to grow both postgraduate taught and research student numbers.
