Your feedback

Your views are important to us.

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) asks for your opinions about your course, staff, community, resources, and more. Using your feedback we make improvements to your department, community and experience as a whole.


What is PTES?


The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is a survey made available to all HE institutions across the UK that have postgraduate Taught students. PTES is designed to help institutions enhance the quality of postgraduate degree provision by collecting feedback from current students in a systematic and user-friendly way. PTES uses a ‘by institutions for institutions’ approach, it is managed centrally by the Higher Education Academy and does not feed into league tables.

Who can take part?

We invite all postgraduate taught students to take part in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, which we run together with the Higher Education Academy. More than 100 HE institutions are involved in the survey nationally. The overall aim is to identify, at both local and national level, areas where improvements could be made and efforts targeted to further enhance the provision of postgraduate degree programmes.

Further frequently asked questions are available here.
