Take part in PRES 2018 to win £1000!

Grad School Events

PRES 2018 is the annual national postgraduate research experience survey and provides you with the opportunity to voice your opinions.

We are keen to make sure our postgraduate research students have the best possible experience while studying with us. To do this, we need to know what you think works well and what areas we can work to improve. All feedback we receive from students is important and the data gathered from this survey will help us better the student experience, enhance research culture and make studying at our Institution an exceptional experience for current students as well as paving the way for future research degree students.

What will PRES 2018 ask?

The PRES 2018 survey should only take 10 minutes to complete and you will be asked to rate your overall satisfaction with the quality of your course, how well elements of it have met your expectations, and your satisfaction within the following themes: Supervision, Resources, Research Community, Progress and Assessment, Responsibilities, Research Skills and Professional Development, Opportunities, Overall Experience, Demographic Details and some tailored institutional questions.

By taking part in PRES 2018 you will automatically be entered into our prize draw to win £1000 towards supporting your studies* here at the University of Portsmouth. The winner will be contacted shortly after the survey has closed.
