English language pre-sessional

Undertaking an English language pre-sessional course gives you the unique opportunity to develop the language skills you will need to successfully study at Keele. We can offer a range of accommodation for you to cover the duration of your pre-sessional stay.

At this stage we haven’t finalised which rooms we are able to offer due to a programme of refurbishment works taking place around the campus. The table below shows costs for our different room types and we ask that you choose 3 different room types when applying for a room. However all of these options may not actually be available and an alternative room would be offered to you.
