23% complete Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey so far

Our response rate in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) has now reached 23%.

The survey has been open since 28 April, giving postgraduate students on taught courses the opportunity to share their views about their experience at University.

Run by the Higher Education Academy, PTES is the only national survey to focus on the experience of taught postgraduate students and last year more than 58,000 students from almost 90 institutions took part.

Postgraduate provision

The survey is designed to help universities improve the quality of their postgraduate provision, based on feedback from students. The results are also used nationally to help advise policy and improve the postgraduate experience across the sector.

The survey is due to close on 19 June, so there is still time for students to have their say.

Thank you

Students who complete the PTES will receive £3 in free print credits to say thank you for taking part.

Professor Kelvin Everest, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience said: “It is extremely important that staff encourage postgraduate students to participate as the results of the survey will be used to help guide improvements. Enhancing the student experience is central to the University’s Strategic Plan, and it is important for us to understand exactly where our strengths and weaknesses lie so we can enrich the quality of our provision to postgraduate taught students.”
