One week to go

We're really looking forward to welcoming you into our University and we hope that you're excited to start your university experience. There's just a few things left to do before you begin... Then once you're with us, make the most of all the opportunities available to you as a Keele student!

You should make sure that you've completed your online induction module on the Keele Learning Environment.

You can find more information on our induction module web page.

If you'll be living on campus, please ensure that you've completed your online accommodation induction. This is a very important step and will explain important information about living on campus.

You should make sure that you have your accommodation boarding pass ready (which you will become available once you've completed your online accommodation induction), and that you've booked your arrival slot.

For further information please visit our accommodation web page for undergraduates and postgraduates.

If you will be living off campus, make sure that you've discussed your plans for moving into your off-campus accommodation with your private student accommodation or your private landlord.

 If you’re an international student and will be living on campus, make sure you have completed all of the necessary steps before you travel to the UK.

And remember to place the following items into your hand luggage:

  • Passport
  • Visa and home office decision letter (if required)
  • Travel documents (flight tickets if you need to print them)
  • Evidence of your finances
  • British Sterling / Bank Card
  • Keele University Visa and Confirmation Checklist and/or Keele Offer Letter
  • Original qualification documents as listed on your Visa and Confirmation Checklist
  • Health certificates (if required)
  • Medication and an accompanying letter from your doctor (if required)

 Please remember that we are offering a support package for all new international students which includes free taxi pickup to campus - find out more about it here.
