Welcome to new students

We are very much looking forward to you joining our School.  To help you prepare for your arrival please do take a look at the Welcome Website which provides information on what to do before arriving, what to do upon arrival, central University events which will be running throughout the week and information on the different services at Keele.

We are very much looking forward to you joining our School.  To help you prepare for your arrival please do take a look at the SPIRE welcome postcard 2017-18 of events for you to attend, which also includes a suggested SPIRE Pre-Reading List.

Your first week at SPIRE is the welcome and induction week and will include introductory talks about your chosen programme of study.  During this week we will confirm your module choices and provide you with your lecture and tutorial times; once you’ve made all your choices you’ll be able to view your individual timetable electronically on e-Vision.  You'll be given all the relevant documentation when you register with our school on Monday 25th September 2017, between 10am and 1pm.

SPIRE Student Representatives will be around all week to answer any queries and the SPIRE Fresher's Party is planned for Monday 25th September 2017, 5pm until 7pm.  At this event you can get together with your fellow freshers, current SPIRE students, some of your lecturers and tutors, and also representatives from the student-led Keele Model United Nations Committee, as well as from the Students Union.

If you (or your parents or guardians) have any other questions then please do not hesitate to contact our Senior School Manager Caroline Merritt at email: c.merritt@keele.ac.uk or Telephone 01782 73 3452.

I look forward to meeting you all soon.

Professor Brian Doherty
Head of School for SPIRE
