Why study Applied Social and Political Psychology at Keele University?
MSc in Applied Social and Political Psychology
"The MSc programme encourages you to challenge your own assumptions, values and beliefs about the world out there. I felt like there was always room to ask critical questions and to engage with the topics of interest not only from a psychological perspective but for example, also from an ethical perspective. "
Keele Postgraduate Association
Keele University is one of a handful of universities in the UK to have a dedicated students' union for postgraduate students. A fully registered charity, Keele Postgraduate Association serves as a focal point for the social life and welfare needs of all postgraduate students during their time at Keele.
Hugely popular, the KPA Clubhouse (near Horwood Hall) provides a dedicated postgraduate social space and bar on campus, where you can grab a bite to eat and drink, sit quietly and read a book, or switch off from academic life at one of the many regular events organised throughout the year. The KPA also helps to host a variety of conferences, as well as other academic and career sessions, to give you and your fellow postgraduates the opportunities to come together to discuss your research, and develop your skills and networks.
