Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey – your support needed

May 15th, 2023

The postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) helps us to understand the experience of our postgraduate students and make improvements for future cohorts.

This year’s survey – run by higher education specialists AdvanceHE – will open on Friday 19 May, and will be available for students to complete until Friday 16 June.

The survey focusses on the student’s programme of study and includes questions in the following key areas:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Engagement
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Dissertation / Major Project
  • Organisation and management
  • Resources
  • Support
  • Skills development
  • Overall satisfaction

Eligible students will receive an email to their university email address containing their personalised link to complete the survey. Responses will remain confidential.

Feedback from the survey will inform actions in the school enhancement plans and prove instrumental in making improvements to the postgraduate taught experience. We’re asking for the support of staff in encouraging students to complete the survey – please remind them to check their email for the survey link and do disseminate promotional materials where you are able. Our promotional materials include digital screens, social media posts and lecture slides and can be downloaded from this folder.

This year, for every student who completes the survey, we are donating £1 to the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre charity.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Hannah Sherwood.
