Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey

students lounging around Complete the survey by 14 June

The University is keen to make sure postgraduate students have the best possible experience while studying with us. To do this, they need to know what you think works well and what we could do better.

We will be emailing you shortly to invite you to complete this year’s Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES). Please take a few minutes to take part. The survey is your chance to tell us about your experience as a postgraduate student at Newcastle University.

Your feedback is really important to the University. The PTES is the only national survey of postgraduate students and so is the only way for the University to compare how they are doing against the national average and to make changes that will improve postgraduate students’ experience in the future. 

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and closes on Friday 14 June. Your feedback is confidential to the research team and any reporting will be anonymous.

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)
