Just a quick note to remind you that the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) is only open until 16th May, and all responses are anonymous – if you haven’t had your say yet, you can find the survey here:

If you have completed PRES already, do use your £5 catering voucher soon – it will expire on 31st August!

Some of you have given us some valuable feedback: that the catering voucher isn’t much of an incentive if you don’t spend much time on campus…. and we’ve listened. So, when you complete the survey, you can now opt instead to have us donate £5 on your behalf to the Alumni Hardship and Opportunity Fund (AHOF).

About the Alumni Hardship and Opportunity Fund (AHOF)

The Alumni Hardship and Opportunities Fund was created to help support students who are experiencing severe and unanticipated financial hardship, or who need financial assistance because of a disability or special need. International students can apply and collect forms from either the Student Life Centre or the International Study Abroad Office.

About PRES

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey gives you a chance to share your views on what it’s like to do a research degree at Sussex. It is the only national survey of postgraduate research students and so the only way for us to compare how we are doing against the national average, and to make changes that will improve your experience in the future.

The survey asks you about things like supervision, resources, research culture, progress and assessment, responsibilities, research skills, professional development, opportunities and overall experience.

Who should I contact for further information?

Helen Hampson, Researcher Development Officer (TLDU) is coordinating the survey. Please contact her for further information at
