Organisations

The Keele Postgraduate Association (KPA)

The KPA provides specialist representation for all postgraduates throughout the University, as well as offering vital support and information. They have their very own Clubhouse, serving a range of food and drinks and hosts a wide range of events throughout the year. In addition, they organise a variety of events across the University to give postgraduates the opportunity to discuss their own research and develop skills.

The Students' Union

The Students' Union offer a lot of opportunities to volunteer; it’s where free advice and guidance can be sought and where societies and student groups are managed. Many of these opportunities are not only great fun, but will really complement your studies and help to develop life and future employment skills.

Mature Students' Facebook page

Mature Students of Keele (MaSK) is a group for mature students in Recru it networ to connect with each other. So if you're over 21 when you begin your first year, you can come here to socialise, ask questions, look for housemates . . . anything.
