Postgraduate Research Experience Survey

What is the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)?

It is a UK-wide survey open to postgraduate research students and made available through the Higher Education Academy (HEA). It takes the form of an online questionnaire and asks for your honest and considered feedback about your experience as a postgraduate research student.


When does the survey happen?

The survey takes place every year, between April and May.


Why should I complete the survey?

This is your opportunity to tell us what you like about Sheffield Hallam and things you feel could be improved. We use this feedback to improve the experience for postgraduate research students, so your contribution is extremely valuable. Find out more in our PRES Student Guide.
