Sandwich course fees

Please note that the academic year listed relates to the year a placement is undertaken and not your year of entry:

Placement/Sandwich year Fees

Some programmes include an optional or required placement year. For students commencing their studies from 2017, a discounted fee of 20% of the normal tuition fee (either at Home/EU or at International level) is payable to Keele University for this year. The discounted fee only applies to situations where the full year is spent on placement. Where only a part of the year is spent on placement the full tuition fee is payable to the Keele University as normal.

Study Abroad and International Year Fees

If you are working or studying abroad as part of your degree you will still need to pay tuition fees for that year to the Keele University. The amount will vary depending on the length of your placement.

Tuition fees loans (through your student finance body) will be available to eligible students to cover these costs.
