High student satisfaction reported in Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey 2022

The Department of Economics is pleased to announce that we have achieved excellent results in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2022, with the overall satisfaction amongst the postgraduate taught cohort of 92% with 99% of respondents saying that they would recommend the University of Warwick to other students.

This high level of overall satisfaction with the quality of the course remained the same as in the pre-pandemic year - 92%. This was achieved with a response rate of 37.3% of the postgraduate taught cohort.

The top satisfaction scores in PTES were in:

  • Teaching: 94% agreed that “the course has enhanced my academic ability” and 91% agreed that “staff are enthusiastic about what they are teaching.”
  • Resources: 97% agreed that “there is appropriate access to online library resources” and 94% agreed that “I have been able to access subject specific resources necessary for my studies.”
  • Engagement: 92% agreed with the statement “I am encouraged to ask questions or make contributions in taught sessions,” and 88% agreed that ‘My course has challenged me to produce my best work.”

Professor Caroline Elliott, Deputy Head of Department (Teaching & Learning) said:

“As a Department, we are determined to deliver the best education possible and these results are really encouraging. However, we’re not complacent and we’ll turn our attention to addressing some of the areas in which our scores could have been higher like assessment and skills development. We value student feedback and would like to see more students taking part in future PTES surveys as well as keep submitting their feedback to us throughout the year.”
