PTES results 2019 - thank you for taking part

The results of the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2019 are now available.

48% of you responded to the survey, keeping the conversation going and providing valuable feedback to take forward and improve the postgraduate taught experience.

A big thank you to you all for sharing your feedback and completing the survey!

There were increases in satisfaction across every question category, and 41 of 43 questions have shown improvements (with the other two questions staying the same). These results place Warwick in the top quarter of the sector for all sections (except ‘assessment’ and ‘overall’, where we are in the second quarter).

Results for several question categories increased by 5% or more, including:
  • There is sufficient contact time to support effective learning
  • Feedback on my work has been useful
  • Any changes in the course or teaching have been communicated effectively
  • I am encouraged to be involved in decisions about how my course is run
Aspects of university teaching which you reported satisfaction at 90% or higher included:
  • Teaching staff are good at explaining things
  • Teaching staff are enthusiastic
  • I am encouraged to ask questions or make contributions in taught sessions
  • I have been able to access general IT resources when I needed to
  • I have been able to access subject specific resources necessary for my studies
Thanks to your feedback we'll be working with you to improve areas which you felt needed extra work, including:
  • Feeling part of a postgraduate student community
  • Value for money from course
  • Value for money from the University
  • Support for language needs

Departments have been invited to participate in an action planning activity alongside their students. Action Plans will be one of a small number of core documents considered in autumn term Teaching Excellence Group (TEG) meetings with all academic departments. These meetings will take place in October and November.
