    Postgraduate Research Experience Survey

    What is the PRES?

    This survey is run by the AdvanceHE on behalf of many UK universities and gives you the opportunity to provide valuable feedback that can lead to enhancements in your learning and teaching.

    In previous years, students' feedback has led to improvements including:

    • The introduction of MDXapp, the University’s new student mobile app, and the creation of the 'PGR Community tile'
    • The introduction of Webinars and online recordings as part of the Researcher Development Programme
    • The launch of drop-in sessions for Counselling and Mental Health support
    • The introduction of a real-time chat service for UniHelp, meaning assistance is always available
    • Online Employability Advisers who support students even after they graduate and more
    • Additional sessions added to the Researcher Development Programme to respond to the needs of PGR students
    • Student led networking events to promote cross-discipline networking and supporting students to extend and improve the PGR community
    • The introduction of a series of Wellbeing webinars
    • Improved PGR Induction activities
