Your views are important to us. We utilise feedback to make positive enhancements to your University experience.
This year both the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) have run. These surveys asked you for your opinions and feelings about your course, staff, community, resources, and more. Using your feedback we make improvements to your department, community and experience as a whole.
PRES and PTES
What are PRES and PTES?
The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) are services made available to all HE institutions across the UK that have postgraduate students. PRES and PTES are designed to help institutions enhance the quality of postgraduate degree provision by collecting feedback from current students in a systematic and user-friendly way. PRES and PTES use a ‘by institutions for institutions’ approach, are managed centrally by the Higher Education Academy and do not feed into league tables.
Who can take part?
We invite all postgraduate students to take part in the Postgraduate Experience Survey, which we run together with the Higher Education Academy. More than 100 HE institutions are involved in the two surveys nationally. The overall aim is to identify, at both local and national level, areas where improvements could be made and efforts targeted to further enhance the provision of postgraduate degree programmes.
