Student satisfaction surveys

Each year the School holds satisfaction surveys of its master's (PGT) and research degree (PGR) students. These surveys are important because they enable us to continue improving our postgraduate programmes. They help us to identify areas where we do well and areas that we need to improve to ensure that our students consistently benefit from high-quality master's and doctoral research degree programmes. The results summaries from past surveys are below.

Prior to 2011, the structure and content of our surveys have been based on the UK's national postgraduate satisfaction surveys: the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) and the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES). Since 2011, we have participated in these national postgraduate satisfaction surveys.

The current Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) will be held in spring 2016. The biennial Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) was held in spring 2015.

The results of the School's student satisfaction surveys are reviewed and monitored by the School's Academic Quality and Standards Committee.

We would like to thank all students and graduates that have taken the time to complete previous satisfaction surveys and students and graduates that will do so in the future.
