Keele is best value for money in the UK

Keele University campus

According to a new study Keele University has been named as the most affordable place in the UK to be a student, topping a table of 50 institutions that were compared for rent, travel and living costs.

The study, compiled by the credit card company Marbles.com, aims to help students reach an informed decision when choosing which university they want to study at.

Along with weekly rent and travel prices, the study looked at the average cost of a cinema ticket, Keele’s nearest cinema being in Newcastle Under Lyme just two miles away, student gym membership and the cost of a pint and a kebab. 

Professor Fiona Cownie, Pro Vice Chancellor of Education and Student Experience, said: "With our sector-leading student satisfaction results, both in terms of student experience and satisfaction with their course, Keele’s ability to offer value for money is a key factor in helping students reach university and having a positive experience whilst they are here."
