Research students have your say

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) is the only nationwide survey for research degree students experience, organised by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) that takes place every year.  

How to fill out the PRES survey

If you are a current, eligible PGR student, keep an eye on your emails for updates and a survey link.

How it helps and prizes on offer

The data will give us a better understanding about the experiences of research degree students groups and allow us to improve the overall student experience at the University.

Ordinarily all PRES participants are automatically entered into a prize draw. More information about the 2021 PRES prize will be available in due course.
