Why study at Keele?

International Support Package

International students enrolling at Keele University in September 2020 or January 2021 will receive our new International Support Package worth over £2,000 and free accommodation for 14 days if you are required to quarantine.

We understand that moving abroad to study can be challenging, particularly in these difficult times. Keele wants to make this transition as easy as possible for you and we are therefore offering you an International Support package worth over £2,000. We hope this will help you to travel to and settle into your new home at Keele University.

The International Support Package includes:

  • a contribution to your flight up to £500
  • transport from a named UK airport to the campus
  • a catering package for the first 2 weeks
  • a 'care box' that includes bedding pack, basic kitchen equipment, plug adaptor and thermometer
  • contact with other Keele students via our ‘Student Support Buddy scheme’
  • an electronic device to help you keep in contact with your family and friends, as well as keeping you up to date with information about the campus, your studies and the range of social activities
  • a £1000 discount towards tuition fees (this will be applied to your student record)
  • international applicants are offered 14 days free accommodation on arrival to facilitate quarantine arrangements (irrespective of your date of arrival).

This International Support package is in addition to any Keele scholarships you may already have successfully gained.

It is very important to us that you feel supported at Keele. Your safety, student experience and wellbeing are our priorities and we look forward to welcoming you on campus.
