We’re keen to make sure postgraduate students have the best possible experience while studying at Huddersfield University. To do that we need to know what you think we are doing well and what we can do better. If you’re thinking about taking part this year, these are the answers to some of the questions students often ask:
The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey or PTES is a national survey of postgraduate taught students inviting them to comment on their course and experience. The questionnaire takes around 15 minutes to complete.
The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey is your chance to tell us your thoughts about your course. The results help us compare how we are doing with other institutions, to make changes that will improve what we do in future and to keep doing the things that you value. This will help improve the experience of students like you in the future.
To thank you for taking part, once you complete the survey you will automatically be entered into a prize draw where you could win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers. Please see here for full terms and conditions
PTES concentrates on your course and includes:
Your feedback is important. Over one hundred universities and colleges take part. This means we can compare your experience against similar postgraduates at other institutions to see if we are supporting your learning as we should. We use the findings to improve our courses and the learning experience for future students.
Your survey response is confidential. Your responses will be aggregated and anonymised by the Planning Team within the Vice-Chancellor's office before being made available to the wider University. In particular, none of the academic staff in your school will be able to see your individual responses.
The survey asks that any comments you make should not identify yourself or any specific members of staff.
If you are unsure about anything to do with the survey, or have any difficulty, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
