Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is undertaken by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and it enables postgraduate students to give feedback on their experience of teaching and learning at the University.

We use the findings and feedback from the confidential student survey to further improve our teaching and learning experience, and identify any areas for improvement within the University and our faculties and schools.
