Complete the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey and claim your £5 Sussex Food voucher!

PRES 2017 LogoIf you haven't already participated, there's still time to complete the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and claim your £5 Sussex Food voucher. 

On Wednesday 5th April, all University of Sussex doctoral researchers yet to complete the survey will have received an email reminder from the Doctoral School, containing a unique link to participate in this national survey of postgraduate research students.

Thank you to those of you who have already completed the survey.

Currently, the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences is taking the lead with the highest response rate, with 40.6% of doctoral researchers in the School having participated. They are closely followed by the School of Psychology, with a response rate of 40.2%.

Make sure you have your say! 

The survey provides a great opportunity for you to let us know what works well and what could be better for doctoral researchers at Sussex, and will enable us to make changes that will improve your experience in the future.

All Sussex doctoral researchers who participate will receive a £5 food and drink voucher to use in any Sussex Food outlet on campus. Alternatively, you can choose to donate the money to the University's Student Hardship Fund.

The survey is open until 18th May and will take less than 15 minutes to complete. Responses are confidential and only anonymised data will be shared.

We hope you will take this opportunity to help us enhance the experiences of Sussex doctoral researchers. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Doctoral School's Researcher Development Team at
