For our September 2022 and January 2023 Foundation, International Year One, and Pre-Master’s programmes, KUIC is offering an Intensive English Language entry route via Keele University’s Pre-Sessional Academic English programmes.


The on-line programme meets the high professional standards consistently achieved by our on-campus programme. An early-bird discount is offered to all our applicants who complete their registration and pay the deposit for the Keele pre-sessional course at least 8 weeks before the course begins.

Academic Requirements

A SELT (Secured English Language Test) as defined by the UKVI (UK Home Office) is the preferred method of entry to the Keele Pre-sessional English Programmes.

However, non-SELTs (Academic IELTS, IELTS Indicator, TOEFL, TOEFL Internet Based Test including the Home Edition, PTE Academic, Duolingo the LanguageCert and Password English NCUK version) will be accepted for entry to the 2022 Pre-sessional English online provision. Your certificate must be valid up to the start date of your Pre-sessional English Course.

The following table shows recommended IELTS entry levels.

Please note
Enrolment on the Pre-sessional Academic English programme does not guarantee progression onto your chosen academic course at Keele University International College. In order to meet the English requirements of your course you need to:

  • attend all timetabled lessons;
  • be committed to participating fully in English in all classes;
  • complete all homework, assessments and other work as required;
  • spend time on self-study each day of the programme.
