At NUSU and Newcastle University, we’re keen to make sure postgraduate research students have the best possible experience while studying at the University. To do this, we need your opinions on what you think works well and what could be improved.

In the coming weeks, the University will be emailing you to invite you to complete this year’s Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES). Please take a few minutes to take part as your feedback is important. PRES is the only national survey of postgraduate research students and so is the only way for the University to compare how it is doing agaisnt similar Univeristies and to make changes that will improve your experience in the future.

The survey will open on 18 March and will close on  17 May 2019.  It takes around 15 minutes to complete and as a thank you for your time, all respondents are entered into a prize draw

  •          1st Place prize: 9.7-inch iPad Pro (one available to win)
  •          2nd Place prizes: iPad mini 4 (two available to win)
  •          3rd Place prizes: £20 Amazon gift card (20 available to win)

Your feedback is confidential to the research team and any reporting will be anonymous. If you would like to know more about the survey, please visit:
