The Real Keele 2018 - Residential Summer Schools

Real Keele students

What is The Real Keele?

The Real Keele residentials (previously Uniskills) are two-day student tasters for either Years 10-11 or Year 12, giving you a real experience of student life at university. You will eat, sleep and learn like a Keele student, with the opportunity to try out subject sessions run by Keele staff.

The Real Keele will help you discover more about being a university student, while also finding out if Keele is the right place for you.

You can:

  • Experience life as a student for two days and one night
  • See what it is like to live in student accommodation
  • Try out taster sessions in subject areas you're interested in
  • Speak to current Keele students to find out more about their experiences

There are two events in 2018, one for Years 10-11 and one for Year 12.

There is a fee of £40 to attend, which covers all accommodation and meals during your time here, although we offer funding for eligible students. This is assessed upon application.

When is it?

  • The Real Keele Year 10-11: Tuesday 3 - Wednesday 4 July 2018
  • The Real Keele Year 12: Tuesday 26 - Wednesday 27 June 2018
