These annual awards recognise the achievements of Postgraduate students throughout the year. Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond to support students or contribute to the Postgraduate life at Keele? Is there someone who has shown great strength during this time? Someone who has shown significant kindness and generosity to others? Why not nominate them?

This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their efforts, and get their achievements recognised. Winners can receive a prize of up to £500.

Who was Bob Beattie?

Bob Beattie first came to Keele in 1965 as the Psychology Department’s first lecturer in Clinical Psychology. Bob was, for many years, a mainstay of the KPA Clubhouse, offering informal counselling and advice to many students. After his passing in 2015, the Clubhouse honoured Bob with a sketch portrait that sits above his spot in the KPA and the association honours him, every year by celebrating deserving students with the ‘Bob Beattie Postgraduate Recognition Awards’.
