Recipients of Keele in the USA and Keele in Canada Scholarships
"Keele makes such a big effort to try to get people involved. There are hundreds of clubs and socials and sports for people to try. There’s always something special going on."Read more
"I wanted to find a course that included both Psychology and Counselling. I found some courses in the USA but I also looked internationally. There were a few UK universities offering it but the Keele course was accredited by the British Psychological Society."Read more
"There are several reasons why I chose to study physiotherapy in the UK rather than Canada. One is for the opportunity to experience hands-on learning in small teams. Another is the accelerated learning period and the fact the degree is recognized in Canada is attractive. Thirdly, the UK’s education system recognizes diverse learners and I feel more comfortable knowing that I will have that support system behind me to succeed."Read more
"I loved Keele so much when I came for a semester from Appalachian State that I wanted to come back for more. I really enjoyed the British way of teaching – there was more opportunity for independent thought than I was used to back home and I felt a lot more involved with the subjects and the professors and my fellow students."Read more
"I knew that I wanted to come to England for my study abroad and Keele is a study abroad partner for Concordia. When I looked at the available universities I preferred one nearer to London but when I saw the photo of Keele Hall I changed my mind. I love history and the photo made me think of Harry Potter, so Keele was my choice."Read more
