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 proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The International Foundation Year 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. The entry point to the International Foundation Year depends on your English language level and visa conditions. The International Foundation Year is a 1-year foundation course for students with a English language IELTS level of 5.0. The International Foundation Year allows progression to degree courses in all subjects across business, science, the social sciences and humanities.
