Have your say

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey 2019 was launched at Sussex on Thursday 4th April.

Doctoral researchers will have received an email sent by the Doctoral School to their Sussex e-mail address on 4th April, containing a unique link through which to access the survey. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and responses are confidential to the research team.

The survey will close on Wednesday 15th May 2019.

As a thank you for participating, doctoral researchers completing the survey will have the option to enter a prize draw for 5 chances to win a £100 Love2Shop or Amazon voucher. In addition, for every doctoral researcher that participates, the Doctoral School will donate £1 to the University's Student Hardship Fund.


About the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey is the only national survey of postgraduate research students. It provides a great opportunity for you to let us know what works well and what could be better for doctoral researchers at Sussex.

It will enable us to make changes that will improve your experience in the future, and to compare how we are doing against the national average.

The survey asks about things like supervision, resources, research community, progress and assessment, skills and professional development, wellbeing, and your overall experience.


If you have any questions or queries about the survey, please contact Laura Chapman, Researcher Development Officer.
