Postgraduate Research Experience Survey reports

PRES is the only national survey of Postgraduate Research students’ experience and is run at biannually at the University from March to May.

We are always looking for ways to enhance your learning and supervision experience and this survey helps tell us how you are engaging with your studies, what we are doing well and if there’s anything we can do better.

The University Graduate School (UGS), in collaboration with colleagues in Colleges, has put together brief reports on the key findings of the PRES survey and the actions the University has committed to taking in response to PGR feedback.
