Postgraduate Degree Preparation

When you choose to study a postgraduate course overseas, you are making an investment for your future. You will be looking for a qualification that will enhance your career prospects, and a university that will support you in your studies. And as an international student, with different experiences and perceptions, you will add an important dimension to seminars and discussions.

Keele University offers a range of Masters courses, with those in the business and management areas being particularly popular with international students. But whichever subject you choose to study, you will benefit from the intellectual development the University offers and the stimulation of learning with like-minded students.

The best way to prepare

For a 12 month Masters degree at Keele you will need:

  • a range of academic and learning skills, which you may not have experienced in your home country
  • the ability to adapt to a new cultural environment and thrive academically
  • the right academic qualification and a substantial understanding of the subject
  • the ability to use English in the academic environment to a high standard.

If you do not meet the entry requirements for direct entry to a Masters degree, or want to refresh your knowledge, you can follow our specialist Pre-Masters programme.

Study structure

You can choose one of three Pre-Masters routes:

Specialist preparation

The Pre-Masters is a two-term programme of academic subjects, study skills and English language training. It is designed specifically to meet the needs of international students.

Progression to your degree

Joining the Pre-Masters programme provides you with a conditional offer of a place on one of the specified Masters degrees at the University. Once you have successfully completed the course and achieved the required progression criteria, you will proceed directly to your preferred Masters programme.

Personal monitoring and support

The Pre-Masters is taught by specialists in university preparation. Your progress will be monitored at all times to make sure you remain on track to complete the programme successfully.

Assessment

Your development will be assessed regularly throughout the programme. This will ensure you achieve the standard required for progression onto your chosen postgraduate degree. Assessments include: − coursework − unseen written examinations − presentations − extended essays and case studies.
