Keele accepts students with school-leaving qualifications from many overseas countries for entry to undergraduate (bachelor) degree courses.  The actual grades you require in particular subjects will vary according to the degree course you wish to study.  You will also require an English language qualification.

If you do not meet the requirements for direct entry into Year 1 of our undergraduate (bachelor) degree courses you can apply for a place on our Foundation Year or International Year One programmes.

Some of the qualifications we accept can be found below, listed alphabetically by country. If your country or qualification does not appear on the list below we may still be able to accept you, please contact the International Recruitment team on international@keele.ac.uk for advice.

Information regarding A levels, BTEC, International Baccalaureate qualifications and subject-specific requirements can be found on the UK Entry Requirements pages.
