Study abroad for Keele Students

To support our students in gaining invaluable skills, we offer a great range of study abroad and international opportunities for students to participate in during their undergraduate studies. Having the opportunity to study a semester abroad or go on the International Year allows you to undertake part of your undergraduate degree outside of the UK at one of our exchange partner universities.

Benefits to studying abroad

The majority of our courses give you the chance to spend a Semester or a Year studying abroad. Study abroad is a fantastic opportunity; here are just some of the benefits:

  • Academic and personal development
  • A chance to see the world and travel to a different country
  • Broaden your horizons
  • A boost for your CV and employability
  • Improve your language skills and cultural awareness
  • Inspires confidence and independence
  • Make lifelong friends!

You don’t need to be fluent in another language to study abroad; as all our partners teach in English. You can also take part in our Faculty-led short programmes or summer schools to gain an international experience.


We offer our language students the opportunity to practise their language skills and gain first-hand experience of the target cultures in intensive summer vacation courses at selected partner universities abroad.
