The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is now open!


We invite all Postgraduate Taught students to participate in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2021. This is a national survey organised by AdvanceHE, and will take around 15 minutes to complete.

The survey asks about your experience of your postgraduate taught studies.  Please do reflect on your experience over the last 12 months when responding to this survey. We realise these are challenging times, but it important we continue to seek your views of your student experience, which will help inform our policies and processes going forward.  The results are also used nationally to inform policy and improve the postgraduate taught experience across the sector.


What will the survey ask about?

The PTES asks about a number of aspects of your student experience, including: 

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Engagement
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Organisation and Management
  • Skills Development

Your voice counts

We are keen to make sure our postgraduate taught students have the best possible experience while studying with us.  To do this, we need to know what you think works well and what we could do better.  PTES is the only national survey of postgraduate taught students and is the only way for us to compare how we are doing against the national benchmarks. So, the more students that take part, the better! Your participation in this year’s survey is very important and we really appreciate your giving your time for this.  The deadline for completing the survey is 17 June 2021.

Are my responses confidential?

Yes. All data will be held anonymously and students who participate will not be identified.
