Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey

Take part in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey

What is the PTES?

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is the only UK higher education sector-wide survey to gain insight from taught postgraduate students about their learning and teaching experience.

The PTES gives you the opportunity to provide open and honest feedback on your experience of postgraduate taught study at Essex, your course and your department.

It considers your motivations for studying your chosen programme and your experience, where relevant, of undertaking a major project or dissertation.

How do I take part? 

Eligible students will be contacted when the survey goes live. 

What happens with the results? 

The anonymised results of the survey allow us to continually review our postgraduate provision and reflect on the ways we can enhance the postgraduate student experience.

The results do not inform league tables but allows prospective students the opportunity to compare our postgraduate provision with that of other institutions, helping them to make a valuable and informed choice about their future.
