Postgraduate Research Experience Survey

The 2018 PRES is now open! Click here to complete the survey (and see below for log-in instructions).

Are you a postgraduate research student?

If yes, you are invited to take part in the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) run by DMU with the Higher Education Academy. More than 120 universities will be involved in this survey nationally.


The survey asks about your experience of your postgraduate research programme.  Your responses will be combined with those of others to help inform DMU about the experience of postgraduate researchers, helping us to improve future support. The results are also used nationally to help inform policy and improve the postgraduate research experience across the sector.

The PRES is an online questionnaire that takes around 15 minutes to complete. All data will be held anonymously and students who participate will not be identified. 

Your voice counts

The feedback from students who took part in the PRES 2017 helped the university to improve the student experience for research degree students, therefore your participation in this year’s survey is very important and we really much appreciate your time.

The survey is available from Monday 5 March 2018 to Friday 18 May 2018. Please click here to begin the survey.

Your username is your De Montfort University student number e.g. P10101010. Please note that the username is case sensitive, all P’s and X’s should be entered as capital letters.

Your password is your date of birth in this format ddmmyyyy, e.g. 01121970 (do not enter any slashes in your date of birth).
