Celebrating 10 years of Keele University International Study Centre

10 June 2019

Study Group is delighted to be celebrating a 10-year collaboration with Keele University. Coinciding with Keele University’s 70th anniversary, this milestone is a testament to the strong relationship between the university and the International Study Centre (ISC).

James Pitman, Study Group’s Managing Director of Partnerships for UK and Europe, said: “We’re proud to be celebrating our 10-year anniversary with Keele University. The success of the International Study Centre is thanks to the hard work of both staff and students, and the ongoing commitment of Keele University to this association. We look forward to welcoming new international students as the appetite for on-campus pathway preparation continues to grow and deliver outstanding results.”

The Keele difference

Keele University International Study Centre’s first intake was in September 2009, and it has since gone from strength to strength. More than 1,000 students have passed through its doors and have gone on to top careers in the UK and abroad. The International Year One has now been running for 10 years, giving students specialist preparation to progress with confidence into the second year of their chosen degree at the University. The International Study Centre has since added the International Foundation Year and Pre-Master’s programme to its pathway options.

Keele offers a welcoming new home for international students on the largest campus in the UK. Students love its strong community atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, and the individual support offered by teachers and staff.

Keele ISC alumni Vusal from Russia

Vusal from Russia studied the International Year One in International Relations and Politics at Keele ISC in 2016/17. He is graduating with a BA (Hons) in International Relations and plans to continue at Keele University by studying a Master’s in Global Security. He said:

“The ISC gave me something I could never ask for - good friends, new opportunities and a chance to start all over again. I am grateful to absolutely everyone in the ISC for offering me an opportunity to continue my education in England and for the chance to meet such lovely people, who I now proudly call my friends.

This place has offered opportunities for so long and I wish it only to become better, stronger and bigger. I feel great about Keele’s 10-year anniversary and I wish it will continue producing experts and professionals in different fields of study.”
