Entry requirements

At Keele, we encourage all those who have the ability to study at university to apply. Here we explain what our general entry requirements are and which qualifications we accept.

We judge all applications on their individual merits and take account of all the information provided on the UCAS application forms, including: predicted grades, AS-level results (if available), the referee’s report, applicant’s personal statement, GCSE results and non-academic achievements.

We welcome applications from candidates with non-traditional qualifications and will take into consideration prior learning and experience and alternative qualifications. Applicants are normally required to have completed a period of recent study in the last 3 years.

We do not have preferred or specified subject combinations. We welcome applicants whose studies cross traditional boundaries e.g. science/arts combinations but equally we are happy to consider applicants whose studies are in more cognate areas.

Interviews are held for all applicants applying for the following courses only:

  • Medicine
  • Midwifery
  • Nursing
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Social Work

Some applicants with non-traditional qualifications will also be invited for interview, depending upon their recent study experience.
