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
"I have met some wonderful people at Keele and I have made true friends - everyone has been welcoming and friendly. I feel at home here - I love the campus, the people and the education system. I really enjoy the flexible approach to learning - it's more exploratory and more like a discussion than a lecture. In fact, it's magnificent, far above and beyond anything I expected."Read more
"It’s very welcoming and everyone is quick to help. Everything is close by and it’s so English - and yet there are people here from all over the world. Not just the students but the professors too. Even if they are English, they have all lived or worked abroad. It’s a great place to get a world view. And it’s gorgeous. Walking to class every day I see something new, something different, it’s just beautiful."Read more
"Once I got to Keele I liked it and then I heard out about the Master’s programme in Human Rights, Globalization and Justice. It is a unique course, unlike anything else I have seen elsewhere, and certainly not a course I could pursue in Canada. I knew Keele already and I liked the course so it was a very easy decision. Keele seems to be a traditional university with a good community life."Read more
"I love history so the heritage of Keele appealed to me. Keele seemed to be a traditional university with a real community life. I spoke to someone who knows Britain and they recommended it above all my other UK options because of its long history and its reputation. I was also persuaded by its excellence in my chosen subject."Read more
