fdf logoThe national Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) will both run in Spring 2013. Institutions are invited to register their interest in participating in either or both surveys by e-mailing surveys@heacademy.ac.uk by 30 November 2012.
Student experience surveys can be an important source of information about students' learning experiences. We support higher education institutions and disciplines to use survey data for enhancement purposes.
Our work is centred around three different surveys: National Student Survey (NSS).
We support institutions and disciplines to interpret and use NSS data to make real improvements in learning and teaching. In addition to disseminating research and examples of good practice, we produce subject specific analyses of the data, and directly support institutions and departments to effectively explore and use their results. Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES).
PRES and PTES comprise a unique service run by the HEA and made available to UK HEIs which have postgraduate provision. The surveys allow institutions to collect feedback on the experiences of their research and taught postgraduate students, in an anonymous and user-friendly way. Each institution’s data is confidential to that institution, ensuring result are used for enhancement purposes rather than for league tables. Participating institutions are able to benchmark their results against the national sector aggregate and those of similar institutions by joining benchmarking clubs.
