We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Founded in 1949, by the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, we are proud of our heritage of over 70 years of history as a leading British university. We are committed, now more than ever, to our founding ethos of supporting and developing confident, academically astute and critical thinking students, who can progress in their career and reach their goals.
Keele is located in the heart of England on a beautiful 600-acre campus. We are ideally situated right by a bustling university town, Newcastle-under-Lyme, minutes away from the ever-developing city of Stoke-on-Trent and less than an hour away from Manchester and Birmingham and only 90 minutes by train to London.
Whatever your area of study, we deliver a unique and international learning experience for postgraduate students. We teach in small groups, provide one-to-one access to our academics and value the quality of our teaching as highly as our research.
For postgraduates, our rural campus community provides an environment that is focused, relevant and mature. We are one of the only universities in the country to offer an on campus Students' Union that specialises in representing the interests of postgraduate students, the Keele Postgraduate Association (KPA).
Be a part of Keele’s dedication to helping to change the world for the better by engaging in cutting-edge research. You will have full access to our respected academics and you will benefit from a reputation for excellence in research. Our Institute of Liberal Arts & Sciences will provide you with a hub for debate, academic enquiry, interdisciplinary collaboration, as well as fresh thinking for the great challenges the world faces today.
It’s little wonder our global students and alumni community are as individual as the University itself: progressive and accomplished, clear about who they are and what they want to be, equipped to meet some of the big challenges the world today presents, for the good of society and enterprise. It’s the Keele difference.
We hold a number of Postgraduate Open Afternoons each year which give prospective students the opportunity to visit the campus and learn more about Keele and postgraduate life in general.
Please book your attendance in advance to ensure that we can arrange for an academic from your course area to be available at the event.
