On the Management programme you have the potential opportunity to spend a semester abroad in their second year studying at one of Keele’s international partner universities. Exactly which countries are available depends on your choice of degree subjects. An indicative list of countries is on the website Partner Universities however this does not guarantee the availability of study in a specific country as this is subject to the university’s application process for studying abroad.
No additional tuition fees are payable for studying abroad but you do have to bear the costs of travelling to and from their destination university, accommodation, food and personal costs. Depending on the destination you are studying at additional costs may include visas, study permits, residence permits, and compulsory health checks. You should expect the total costs of studying abroad to be greater than if they study in the UK, information is made available from the Global Education Team throughout the process, as costs will vary depending on destination.
The International Year is an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their degree. Students are encouraged to add to their areas of study with complementary subjects. For example, a Law student may decide to do Politics or International Relations, a Criminology student might like to do Psychology, a Maths or Computer Science student might like to do Business Studies. Students are also encouraged to study a language. The International Year allows students to create their own bespoke degree, a bonus when looking for a job upon graduation. This year is recognized in the student’s degree as “XXX with International Year”. Currently, Keele students apply for the three year degree and then change to the International Year when they are accepted on the programme in their 2nd year at Keele.
