Foundation Year Our Foundation Year provides an excellent alternative route to Keele, providing a unique opportunity to better prepare for your chosen degree, and with guaranteed entry onto your undergraduate course once you successfully complete your Foundation Year. This extra year of study can improve your academic skills, expand your subject knowledge, give you a better understanding of higher education and, perhaps most importantly of all, build your confidence. On the Keele Foundation Year, you'll study on campus, joining our undergraduate community from the outset, with access to all the facilities and support that you'd get as an undergraduate student at Keele. International Students For International Students, Foundation Years are delivered through our dedicated on-campus provider, Keele University International College.

Building on your knowledge of animal physiology, anatomy, biochemistry and molecular cell biology, you will explore a broad range of bioveterinary issues facing society and discover how scientific research is addressing these problems. Throughout the programme you will develop a deep understanding of communicable and non-communicable diseases of major animal species, including wildlife, livestock, birds, and companion and display animals. You will also examine a range of routine tests available in veterinary diagnostics laboratories, how these are applied in the screening, diagnosis and monitoring of select diseases, and how this relates to the underlying pathophysiology and treatment of disease.
