Keele University

Keele University is internationally recognised for the quality of its teaching and research. Every year we welcome postgraduate students from over 90 countries, who are attracted by our academic reputation, the relevant courses we offer and our beautiful campus. We have active undergraduate exchanges with 19 US universities (see below) and annually send 50-70 Keele students to the US.

The University is located on a greenfield campus site at the heart of England, about 60 miles north of Birmingham and 60 miles south of Manchester and 3 miles away from the town of Newcastle-under-Lyme, which means that the university buildings are all in one place and it is very easy to walk around the campus.

Keele benefits from a beautiful location but also has easy transport links to local towns and cities and to other parts of the country. That means that Keele students can enjoy visiting larger cities in the UK, without the cost of living there.

Detailed information about Keele can be found on our website at:
