Prepare for your postgraduate degree.
The Pre-master's programme is an intensive programme designed to prepare ambitious postgraduate international students for masters-level study. You will study over two terms, during which time you will develop your academic skills - either deepening the knowledge gained during your undergraduate degree, or discovering new subject areas. You will also improve your English language skills and develop the critical thinking and research skills needed to succeed in graduate-level study at Keele University.
The Pre-master’s programme is available for students who want to study business and management. You will be assessed regularly throughout your course to make sure you are making good progress and achieving your goals. These include coursework, written exams, presentations and team projects.
Develop your understanding of research methods, statistical analysis and management to prepare for your future in business.

Save time and money, and experience a seamless transition to postgraduate success, by studying our Pre-Master’s and Master’s course with one visa.
Doing this means you will benefit from:
*The English for Pre-master’s course is not covered by the Combined Visa. You will need to apply for a separate visa to cover this part of your studies.
This two-term programme will help you expand your academic knowledge while developing your English language skills. During your Pre-master’s programme, you will study a combination of core and subject-specific modules that focus on academic areas most useful to your chosen degree.
When you receive confirmation of your place to study at the International Study Centre, you will receive a conditional offer of a place on one of the specified master’s degrees at the university. Once you successfully complete the programme, and achieve the required grades, you will join your chosen master’s degree.
If you do not meet the required English language level for your programme, you can first take an English for Pre-master's course at the International Study Centre. This is designed to help you improve your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. You can then progress to the Pre-master's programme.
