"I was given the opportunity to take modules that were not available at Keele, for example, 'Geographies of Canada' or a different G.I.S module to what is offered at Keele. This definitely broadened my perspective of my discipline and what I learnt out there informed my idea for my dissertation at Keele!"

What is Study Abroad?

In your second year you have an opportunity to spend the first semester in a number of European countries, the USA or Canada. Because of bilateral agreements with some universities, it is possible to study both of your Keele subjects when you are abroad, and for the marks gained to be transferred directly back into your Keele degree profile. Students are selected for exchange visits partly on the basis of their academic record at Keele, so if you want to study abroad you need to be doing well in your courses at Keele.

There is also the option of going abroad for a whole year between second and third year, in what is known as year 2B.

You need to think and plan early if you are interested. The application process usually starts by attending the Global Education Fair in mid-October.

(For exact dates check with the Global Education Office).

Exchange and overseas students

If you have reached this point, you are well on your way to accessing the information you need. At first you may be overwhelmed by the many pages of details, so here is a brief guide to what you may find most helpful if you are new to Keele.

Module specifications

These are based upon the information required by the University before module is approved, and they provide the definitive module specification. You are welcome to look at these documents, but you almost certainly will not need them.
