The start of a new academic year is always a busy and exciting time.
Students from all over the world have arrived at Keele to begin a new adventure: study and hard work towards a degree as well as discovering what it is like to live in another cultural environment.
Keele is unique in that the English Language Unit assesses the English level of every single international student as soon as they arrive, and this allows us to provide the appropriate support, if needed, throughout the student’s stay at university. Many students are enrolled onto EAP modules, which are aimed at providing the skills necessary for academic study. Other modules on offer are British Cultural Studies, and programmes for postgraduates which focus on specific writing or speaking skills.
Language courses are proving to be very popular this year, for both home and international students, and without giving the game away, there have been some surprises in what students are opting to select as electives.
We are very much looking forward to meeting the new faces on campus as well as those of you who are returning to continue your studies. We are nicely located in the curve of the “banana” in Chancellor’s B building. Pop by and say “hello” – we are all very friendly!
