Keele Alumni Discount

A discount of 20% of the taught postgraduate course fee is offered

The award

This is a 20% discount of the tuition fee charged for Keele Alumni (10% for online programmes).

The Keele Alumni Discount is a reduction of 20% off the total tuition fees for any taught postgraduate course leading to a named award of at least Postgraduate Diploma at Keele University. Eligibility will be assessed prior to enrolment and students who are to receive the award will be notified of the discount being applied on the CAS checklist.

For students studying a programme delivered wholly online, the same eligibility criteria as for UK students will apply and the reduction will be 10%.


In order to be eligible for the Keele Alumni Discount, you must fulfil the following criteria: 

  • You must have graduated from Keele University (including students who have completed Keele degrees overseas) with either an undergraduate degree, a postgraduate degree award (of at least 120 credits or a full Master's degree) or the Keele Certificate in Counselling. All Keele graduates who meet the aforementioned criteria are eligible to receive the discount, regardless of their original graduation date.  
  • You must be registered on, and attending, a taught postgraduate course that equates to at least one year's full-time study at postgraduate study at postgraduate level and leads to a named award of at least Postgraduate Diploma level at Keele University. Students taking a taught postgraduate course with Keele University to at least 120 credits will be eligible for consideration for the discount. The award will be offered for some lower credit courses providing total credit study within the academic year exceeds 40 credits.  
  • You must not be taking a course that is fully funded by the Teaching Agency, the NHS or any other organisation/employer. If your course is partly funded by an external organisation/employer, discounts will only be applied to the proportion of fees you pay as an individual.
  • Students who take the MA in Social Work, and are not in receipt of external funding, or receive partial tuition fee funding from the NHSBA, may be eligible to receive the Alumni Discount on the proportion of the fee they pay as an individual. Social Work students in receipt of a fully funded place are not eligible to receive the Keele Alumni Discount. 


Qualifying recipients of the scholarship will receive the award in the form of a tuition fee discount. No cash alternative is available.

The Scholarship is for students who will be based at Keele University and start their studies in January 2024 or September 2024. The award cannot be used for any other year of entry.
