Electives

Keele University School of Medicine can offer elective programmes to clinical year medical students interested in completing 4–8 week clinical placements at one of our two teaching hospitals: Royal Stoke University Hospital or The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust.

We do not charge any tuition fees for an elective, but there is a non refundable registration fee of £100. The fee is payable once a placement has been secured for you and is required before you commence your placement.

To apply, please download an application form.

If you are a non-EU or non-EEA national and/or you are required to obtain a visa to enter the United Kingdom to study an elective placement with us, please be aware that the University is currently reviewing the process following UK Home Office immigration changes and is not processing requests for visas at this time.

More information will be available as soon as the new process has been finalised.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
