Fees and Funding

Study abroad funding is important to all students and requires some careful planning. Luckily, there are lots of funding opportunities available to students, both from Keele University and from other organisations.

The information provided on this page is accurate for funding to be provided to students going on study abroad in 2020/21.

If you are studying abroad as part of your degree you will still need to pay tuition fees for that year to Keele University. You do not pay any fees to your host university. 

Tuition fee loans will be available to eligible students to cover these costs through your student finance body.
