About this open day
We’re Keele and we’re different. Founded almost 75 years ago to meet the demands of a new kind of society, economy and world, our principles resonate now more than ever.
We are a campus university with over 12,500 students, nestled in 600 acres of Staffordshire countryside and just an hour from Manchester and Birmingham. It’s a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community, with space to think and plenty to do.
Keele University was born from a pioneering vision, one of a different kind of university. Established in 1949 by Lord Lindsay – the former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University – in a country still recovering from the Second World War, the University’s founding aim was to produce graduates who not only had the technical and specialist knowledge to move society forward, but who understood the social and political landscape that drove this need.
Fast-forward almost 75 years and this original ethos remains at the core of the University’s mission, and our global network of over 100,000 alumni in 120 countries is creating positive impact across the world in a range of diverse careers.
