The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) opened on Monday 17 April 2023 and is an opportunity for all postgraduate research (PGR) students to share experiences about:
- Research Culture
- Progress & Assessment
- Research Skills
- Profession Development
- Overall Experience
The survey is confidential and takes 15-20 minutes to complete. The feedback will be used by BU to inform BU-wide enhancements to the PGR experience and inform faculty level improvements to the research environment and support for PGRs. It will also help us to benchmark our performance against other higher education institutes to identify key areas for development.
If you are eligible, you will receive an email on Monday 17 April from BU's Doctoral College (from [email protected]) with a unique link to the survey. If you haven’t received an email and feel that you are eligible, please contact [email protected].
Upon completing the survey, PGRs will be entered into a free prize draw where you can win one of four prizes of a £50 Love2shop gift voucher. Terms and conditions apply.
We will be making a £1 donation for every survey completed to the student mental health wellbeing charity, Student Minds.
If you would like to know more about the survey, please visit the PRES 2023 webpage. The PRES 2023 privacy notice is also available for your perusal.
The deadline to complete the survey is Monday 15 May 2023.
The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) is a national survey led by AdvanceHE and coordinated by the Doctoral College.
