“Everyone has the right to education,” according to Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Keele University is dedicated to assisting students from all backgrounds in gaining access to higher education and offers scholarships to asylum seekers and forced migrants seeking refuge in the United Kingdom.
About the Scholarship:
Keele University was the first new university in the United Kingdom in the twentieth century, and it was established to promote interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research. Keele was the first university to offer a Dual Honours degree, which is now pursued by over 70% of students. Single-honours degrees and a multi-disciplinary foundation year are also available. Almost all undergraduates can study abroad for a semester at one of the University’s 80 partner universities, with 10,000 students from over 120 countries enrolled. Keele is routinely placed in the top three universities in the United Kingdom for student happiness. Keele University is situated on 600 acres of parkland, which includes huge woods, lakes, and lovely parkland. The estate’s centerpiece is the 19th-century Keele Hall, which is listed as Grade II by English Heritage. Keele University has a specialized International Student Support Team that is in charge of organizing the Meet and Greet service for new students at Manchester Airport and London Heathrow at the start of the semester. Numerous events are held to introduce international students to one another and to educate them about various nations. Prior to Welcome Week, there is International Orientation, which is designed to assist students in adjusting to life in a new country. Pre-sessional English lessons, which last up to 12 weeks before the start of term, and a foundation year, which includes English language lessons as well as general study, are available to international students. If they book before the deadline, all international students will be assured on-campus housing and will be able to stay for the duration of their study. On campus, there are four residence halls. Barnes, Lindsay, Holly Cross and The Oaks, and Horwood are among the cast members. Approximately 2,800 students are housed in these halls collectively. There are en suite and ordinary rooms available, as well as catered choices. The surrounding area is noted for its reasonably cost lodging. The Keele University campus is in Staffordshire, near Newcastle-under-Lyme. It is centrally positioned, approximately 1.5 hours from London and less than an hour from Manchester and Birmingham. The Potteries are a network of related towns and communities that were historically recognized for making pottery throughout the Industrial Revolution. As a result, it contains a large number of classic manufacturing towns and cities surrounded by rural areas. Student housing, a library, a Students’ Union, stores, restaurants, and cafes, as well as instructional facilities, are all available on campus. A chapel, an Islamic Center, and an inclusive quiet area for people of all faiths are also located on the site. Keele University offers a comprehensive selection of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs. Medicine and health sciences, humanities and social sciences, and natural sciences are among Keele’s specialties. Over £115 million has been invested in the university’s campus and infrastructure in recent years, including a £2.7 million transformation of the Student’s Union and campus center, which includes a walk-through sculpture installation called the Forest of Light to commemorate Keele’s 50th anniversary. The University also has a 70-acre development site for its Science and Innovation Park, which now houses 40 enterprises employing over 600 people on its Science and Business Park. Keele takes pride in being one of the UK’s most environmentally conscious institutions, emphasizing sustainability and ethical decisions in its campus projects. Its setting is rich in biodiversity and resources, allowing students and staff to participate in the sustainability agenda. They include a program that allows students to grow their own food on campus, an open-to-the-public allotment system, and an arboretum with more than 240 types of cherry trees that was recently designated as a National Collection by the conservation organisation Plant Heritage.
