A warm welcome to the Keele Foundation Year virtual offer holder day for September 2021 entrants.
Our Offer Holder pages pages contain information about our staff, modules, and support available to Foundation Year students. We encourage you to explore all of the Foundation Year pages, which provide further information about teaching and learning in the Foundation Year. You can navigate easily from our main homepage to the rest of our website.
Many of our students comment on how approachable and supportive the Foundation Year staff are. Our staff are passionate about teaching, and have been commended for their pastoral support and innovative teaching and assessment methods by both internal and external auditors. Many of them are active within their areas of expertise, and embed new concepts and insights they’ve gained from research collaborations into their teaching.
We hope to welcome you onto our beautiful campus in September.
