Find out more about the support available for your studies and where to access the information you will need.

Undergraduate Students

Use the modules website to find out if you need to choose elective modules. Click on module selection or the “Treatment your module here” link and use the tabs and links to select your level of study and your chosen degree.

If you need them, you will be able to choose your option or elective modules in eVision once you have received confirmation that you have successfully completed the other pre-enrolment processes.

Students will have access to their individual timetable through the KLE. For further information and guidance on understanding your timetable please see the timetabling webpages.

Getting to Know the Library

One of the places you should really get to know is the Library. In fact, Keele has two libraries – the main Campus Library and the Health Library at the Royal Stoke University Hospital (only 3 miles from Campus). But it’s not just the buildings you should familiarise yourself with; the Library provides a huge range of high quality digital resources (databases, e-journal collections and e-books) to support your studies.

The Libraries provide study space to work by yourself in silence and more sociable and collaborative spaces to work with your friends; so you can study in the way that suits you. You can also pre-book individual or group study rooms at the Campus Library. Both libraries provide student IT, printing and copying facilities and are WiFi enabled, so feel free to work with your own device.

Once you have enrolled you automatically become a member of the Library. You can borrow up to 20 items at a time and loans are automatically renewed (unless someone requests them), but make sure you have your Keele card – it’s your Library card as well – and you can’t borrow without it.

With so much available, you may find it daunting at first to find and access the resources you need, so there are friendly and helpful staff on hand to answer any questions you have, point you in the right direction and explain how things work.  You can talk to them in person, over the phone, or via 24-hour chat service, so someone will always be there to help you.

Campus Library

The campus library provides access to a huge range of online and print resources and study spaces. It is open 24/7 during semesters. It is really important that you learn how to get the most out of it, so to prepare you for starting at Keele you can find lots of useful information on the library webpages.

Health Library

The Health Library at the Clinical Education Centre at the Hospital Campus is also open throughout the week at the following times:

  • Monday - Thursday: 8.30am-9.45pm
  • Friday: 8.30am-7.45pm
  • Saturday - Sunday: 10.00am-10.00pm

The Health Library is not open on Bank Holidays and has no out-of-hours access. During the weekends and after 5.30pm please use the side-entrance opposite the footbridge. You will need to use your Keele card or library membership card to gain access, using the Access Control system to open the door.

If you feel in need of additional academic support, get in touch with the Student Learning team. They provide support to students in order to develop academic, professional or personal skills. The team offer one to one appointments through the Write Direction service, group workshops and online resources.
