Postgraduate Research Experience Survey: Closing soon

PRES 2017 Logo

There's still time to Have Your Say and help us enhance the experiences of Sussex doctoral researchers by completing the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES).

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.

So far, the highest response rate has come from the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences, with 56.3% of current doctoral researchers within the School having participated. The School of Psychology follows closely behind with a response rate of 52.2%.

If you haven't yet completed the survey, you will have received a reminder email from the Doctoral School on Wednesday 10th May. The e-mail contains a unique link through which you can access the survey.



Please note that the survey will close on 18th May. Please also be aware that the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey is not in any way linked to the NSS boycott. 

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. Responses are confidential and only anonymised data will be shared.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Doctoral School’s Researcher Development Team at
