As soon as you you register onto a postgraduate course, you are officially a member of the KPA. This doesn't cost you anything and you don't need to fill anything in. You are automatically subscribed to our mailing list, which allows you to access our weekly newsletter, presidential monthly reports and general news that we think might interest you!
We are currently accountable for an ever - growing 3000 postgraduate students - which only increase per year! As a member of the KPA, you gain access to the wide variety of support and services that we offer, can attend and vote in all of our democratic general meetings and elections, which help to inform the concerns of the officer team. You can also apply for our KPA bursary to fund conferences and extra-curricular activities that enhance your learning!
As one of only two postgraduate student unions in the UK, we pride ourselves as a unique body. Our rich heritage bolsters our image as a high performing postgraduate union, founded at Keele University in 1963!
