New Keele University International College officially opens
A new partnership between Keele University and leading global education provider Navitas has officially opened its doors to give international students new opportunities to access higher education with Keele.
The new Keele University International College is accepting applications from international students to study a variety of programmes that will enable them to progress onto a course at Keele. The first students recruited will start in September 2022.
Prospective students can find out more via the College’s dedicated website at keele.ac.uk/internationalcollege.
The College will deliver programmes at foundation, undergraduate first-year, and pre-Masters levels, as well as pre-sessional English, all endorsed by Keele and aligned with the University’s own curriculum.
Professor Trevor McMillan, Vice-Chancellor of Keele University said: "I am delighted that our new partnership with Navitas will allow us to further enhance our offering to international students, who form a crucial part of the Keele community. Not only will Navitas’ expertise and experience in international recruitment be an asset to us, but their ambitions and values are closely aligned with our own, particularly their commitment to providing a high-quality student experience.”
Paul Lovegrove, Navitas Universities Partnerships Europe CEO and Global Chief Operating Officer said: “Keele University is a very important partnership for us. We are committed to working with universities that have a strong internationalisation strategic outlook, universities that offer something unique in terms of student experience both the quality for education and the physical environment in which students’ study and live.
“Keele offers this and so much more. It is consistently ranked in the top ten for student satisfaction and overall study experience based on feedback from students themselves. It’s also one of the top UK universities for research opportunities and graduate employability, something that is so important for graduates.”
Dr Christian Gerstner, College Director and Principal, added: “The whole team is so excited for our College to officially open, and we can’t wait to welcome students and provide them with fantastic support to make sure their studies and time spent with us is successful.
“Keele is like returning home for me, having been an international student at the University. So, I’m a real example of what the Keele support and academic journey can lead to.
“The university has supported over 100,000 students from more than 162 countries. What makes Keele special is that it is a home away from home and there is a real community where support is there 24/7 to ensure that everybody has what they need to focus on their studies.”
