The Keele Alumni Discount*

For 2017 entry this is a £1,000 tuition fee waiver for Keele Alumni (UK/EU students). Students must be taking a taught postgraduate course at Keele University to at least 120 credits.

The Keele Access Scholarship*

This is a £850 tuition fee waiver for UK/EU students for students from backgrounds with low participation in higher education who are taking a taught postgraduate course at Keele University. This award is aimed at supporting traditionally under-represented groups to progress on to graduate study at Keele.

You may be eligible for a scholarship if you live in an area of the UK from which very few students progress to higher education (officially defined as a Low Participation Neighbourhood).

You may also be eligible to receive a Keele Access Scholarship if you have declared that you have a disability on your application for postgraduate study at Keele.
