Your checklist:

  • Passport plus visa and Home Office decision letter (if required)
  • Evidence of your finances
  • British sterling currency and internationally accepted credit or debit card
  • Keele University CAS Statement and/or Keele University offer letter
  • Original qualification documents as listed on your CAS Statement

The British climate can be unpredictable and very changeable, meaning that you will need warm and waterproof clothing for your stay in the UK. It will be cheaper and save on luggage space to buy suitable clothes along with living essentials when you reach the UK. We offer shopping trips throughout Keele Welcome to purchase such items. Please do not send any luggage in advance of your arrival as we have no supervised storage space. If any packages valued over £500 are being sent, you should ask the freight service to hold these and arrange to have them delivered after you arrive at Keele.
