Postgraduate Student of the Year Awards
NOMINATIONS FOR THE BOB BEATTIE AWARDS ARE NOW OPEN!
The Bob Beattie Postgraduate Student of the Year Award is an annual award recognising the overall excellence of a member of the postgraduate community at Keele University. The award recognises a student’s excellent pursuits - not just in their academic work but also their work within the postgraduate community, encouraging its members to strive for excellence.
A graduate of Trinity Hall, Cambridge and the University of Liverpool, Bob Beattie first came to Keele in 1965, as the Psychology Department’s first lecturer in Clinical Psychology. He moved to Lancaster University, later returning to Keele to work with Mountain & Associates Marketing Services, based at the Science Park. He remained after the company closed, doing marketing work for the University. Bob was, for many years, a fixture of the KPA Clubhouse, offering informal counselling and advice to many students. He was a mainstay of the Clubhouse who, following his passing in 2015, honoured him with a sketch portrait. This portrait remains above his favourite seat along with a Latin quote etched in wood donated by Bob.
