Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The International Foundation Year/International Degree Programme provides an excellent preparation for degree level study for overseas students. It is suitable for students whose current academic qualifications and/or English language level do not allow direct application to the first year of a Bachelor’s degree programme. The course prepares you academically for your future studies but also enhances your learning skills, employability and integration into British culture and society.
