Course summary

**About Keele**Set in 600 acres of countryside in North Staffordshire, we have one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in Britain. We’re proud to be No.2 in England for Student Satisfaction with Course (Guardian University League Table, 2020), investing more than £140m in our campus in the last ten years, including £45m new science laboratories. In 2021 we were proud to be awarded Sustainability Institution of the Year at the prestigious Green Gown Awards as part of our mission to become a carbon neutral campus by 2030. We're committed to supporting you to achieve your career goals, and have a dedicated Careers and Employability team who can assist you to navigate your options beyond Keele.**Foundation Year**If you do not meet the requirements for direct entry onto a degree programme, our international foundation year can provide an alternative route into your degree. The course provides preparation for the academic skills required for degree level study, delivering the opportunity to develop the questioning and analytical skills required for progression into your chosen programme. The International Foundation Year is a two-semester programme. Semester one will provide you with a smooth transition into university life through the development of key skills and knowledge in your subject. Semester two will focus on expanding your subject-specific knowledge and skills, which will be integral to your degree success.**Start Dates**We offer a September and January intake across many of our Foundation Year programmes with our January start point offering a compressed timeframe (January-July) but without the loss of teaching weeks or acceleration of teaching and content delivery. Unless otherwise stated, the UCAS equal consideration deadline for all undergraduate applications, except those with a 15 October deadline is 26 January. For our January 2023 foundation year entry, the application deadline is 20 December 2022. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a January intake for the Veterinary Medicine and Surgery degree with Foundation Year and other health-related Foundation Year degrees.Please ensure that you are viewing the correct UCAS page for the entry point you are interested in. You can switch between the September and January UCAS pages by using the blue 'course options available' button above. We welcome direct applications for the January entry point.
