Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey – call for support


April 11th, 2022

The university is conducting a survey with our postgraduate taught students to understand their experience and learning during 2021-22.     

We surveyed all students (undergraduate, PGT and PGR) in June 2020 and ran a PGT survey in summer 2021 to find out how Covid-19 had affected their learning experience, with the aim to provide improved support.   

The feedback from these surveys helped us to understand how the university needs to support students’ learning and wellbeing throughout the year. Communications, wellbeing support and enabling safe social interactions were highlighted as areas for us to improve.   

These surveys have been key to informing much of our work this year (Student Guide to Digital Learning, the Coronavirus webpages, newsletters) and are also informing our plans for 2022-23.  Specific feedback from the PGT surveys has been discussed in the university’s PGT Strategy Group, and distributed around Schools, Departments and Professional Services divisions. 

The university is now running the annual Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, administered by Advance HE, to assess the impacts of the measures we have put into place following previous feedback. Questions are only accessible to postgraduate taught students and the results will be used to inform our approach moving forward.   

The survey is now open and will be live until Friday 13 May. Unique links have been sent by email directly to students. 

We are asking for your support in encouraging any students with whom you interact to complete this survey. This will help to maximise the number of responses to better understand where and how we can improve our PGT support. Various promotional materials, including a 16×9 screen that you can use as a lecture slide, are available in this folder 

Your Education and Student Experience team will be in touch with more information. If you have any questions, please contact Hannah Sherwood.
