Postgraduate research opportunities

Here at Keele we have a thriving academic community made up of active researchers in a wide variety of areas. We welcome postgraduate research students from around the world as members of this community and provide support and facilities to enable them to achieve their full potential in a stimulating and lively environment.

We pride ourselves on the high standard of facilities we are able to offer our postgraduates including well equipped office space, postgraduate seminars, an annual postgraduate conference, social events and a weekly “reflections” group where postgraduate issues can be explored in an informal atmosphere.

The inter-disciplinary nature of the Faculty provides excellent opportunities for networking both with other postgraduates and with the academic staff at Keele, thus enabling postgraduate researchers to participate fully in all aspects of the research process.

Research students are an invaluable component of the community at Keele, and we aim to provide an environment where your research can develop and flourish.

Our postgraduate research A-Z lists the areas in which research degrees (PhD and MPhil) and professional doctorates are offered at Keele.

Keele University studentships, when available, are funded internally or from external sponsors such as research councils or from industry. If you are interested in any of the studentships available you can apply online.

Keele University is a member of the Northwest Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP), one of fourteen Partnerships sponsored by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC).

Keele University is pleased to offer PhD Studentships funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) across a number of Humanities and Social Science pathways.
