Why study Geoscience Research at Keele University?
"The MSc in Geoscience Research enabled me to develop many of the fundamental interdisciplinary skills required to go onto further research, as a large focus of the course was on developing the necessary research training skills"
"The Generic Research Skills module provided me with the skillset to successfully disseminate my research. This proved pivotal in the interview stage of the PhD application as the practice of disseminating my work to academics and peers ensured I had no problems in doing the same in an interview situation."
"Along with a broad geological knowledge I also gained many transferrable skills that employers look for, such as project management, organisation, teamwork and health and safety"
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.
