Know that the United Kingdom uses the following terminology:

  • Courses (UK) refer to Majors/Departments (US)
  • Modules (UK) refer to Classes/Courses (US)

The possible levels are listed below:

  • Level 4 = 1st Year Module
  • Level 5 = 2nd Year Module
  • Level 6 = 3rd Year Module

The British education system differs from the US in that students are expected to function more independently. Throughout the semester students meet with tutors in smaller groups called tutorials where they are expected to participate in discussions about the topics covered in lectures and the course readings. At the end of the term an extensive paper is usually required along with an exam. There are no quizzes, tests or papers during the semester, so students must be self-motivated to keep up with their studies.

Program Housing

Keele offers affordable, clean and secure accommodation staffed 24/7. As an international student coming to Keele for the first time, you’ll benefit from the opportunity to live and study alongside British students in a safe and welcoming environment.

Cost Information

Students in the Haslam College of Business, Architecture and Design, the Tickle College of Engineering, and Social Work will be assessed a charge of 12 credits per semester of study as determined by the fee schedule for the academic year they study abroad. Any payments made directly to the host institution (i.e. accommodation) will follow the host institution's payment schedule, which may be ahead of UT's schedule to release any applicable financial aid.

Please refer to the term-specific Cost Sheets below for estimated costs. These estimates do NOT include any course fees as described above.
