All students must provide evidence of a recognised qualification in English Language, such as IELTS. For more information about language requirements, please visit the university’s dedicated English language entry requirements page.

If you do not yet have the required level of English, you may benefit from one of Keele’s pre-sessional English courses. Please note that pre-sessional courses also have entry requirements. For more information, please visit the university’s dedicated pre-sessional academic English courses page.

Students who do not yet have the required level of English should also consider applying for an International Foundation Year at Keele University International College (KUIC). Located on the Keele campus, KUIC offers undergraduate and postgraduate pathways to Keele University. For more information, please visit the KUIC website.


As a campus university, Keele has over 2,800 bedrooms on site, with a range of accommodation available and all within a short walk of the centre of campus. Guaranteed accommodation on campus is offered for September entry undergraduate applicants who make Keele their firm choice, and who apply for accommodation by the deadline date.

Please note that apprenticeship learners are not eligible to live in Keele halls of residence.


Keele offers the best of both worlds: a close-knit campus community and an exciting local area to explore. It is located just minutes from the university town of Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Manchester and Birmingham are less than an hour away by train.
