Keele University International Study Centre (KUISC) operated by Study Group will close to new students from the end of the 2019-20 academic year. This decision comes after both Keele University and Study Group mutually agreed to end their relationship for the International Study Centre. The University and the International Study Centre will continue to support students to complete their courses and progress successfully onto further study at the University.

Over the past ten years, Study Group and Keele University have helped many international students to achieve their academic goals and progress to Keele University courses. We want to emphasise that we are extremely proud of the many accomplishments of all of our staff and the students who have studied at KUISC.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, current students are transitioning to an online learning and assessment experience, led and supported by staff at the Centre. Study Group and Keele University are working together to provide them all with the opportunity to complete their study programme and progress to undergraduate study at Keele University.

If any students currently studying at the ISC have concerns about the impact of this announcement on their current or future assessment opportunities, they may submit a case for Extenuating or Mitigating Circumstances. Students can find the process for this in their Student Handbook available on their virtual learning environment. If students have any further concerns or queries, they can contact the Deputy Director, ISCs, Debbie Stowe, on
