Welcome to students from Kenya

Just one hour from Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool, and 1.5 hours from London, Keele is located in the heart of England on a 600-acre campus that was voted as one of the most beautiful in the UK. Keele was founded in 1949 by the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, and is world-renowned for the breadth of its teaching and research.

Everything is on your doorstep at Keele. Our beautiful 600-acre campus is self-contained with student accommodation, teaching buildings, restaurants and cafés, a sports centre, and medical centre all within easy reach.

We deliver a unique and international learning experience. We teach in small groups, provide one-to-one access to our academics, and value the quality of our teaching as highly as our cutting-edge research.
