HEA and US logos for PRESPostgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES): Have your say and receive a £5 food voucher  (or donate £5 to the Alumni Hardship and Opportunity Fund)

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

PRES 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.

How do I take part?

You can complete the survey anonymously at:

What happens to the results?

Survey results will be disseminated to the Doctoral School Committee (whose remit is to oversee the delivery of provision for postgraduate research students and postdoctoral research staff, including their educational and career development) and Directors of Doctoral Studies within each School. Collective responses about the need for improvement will help the university to work to make things better.

Who should I contact for further information?

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