We’re keen to make sure our postgraduate researchers have the best possible experience while at York. To do this, we need to know what you think works well and what we could do better. 

We participate in the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) every two years. This year’s PRES takes place between Monday 6 March and Friday 28 April 2023. You’ll receive an email inviting you to take part. It’s your chance to tell us about your experience as a postgraduate researcher at York. 

Look out for an email from a JISC address no-reply@app.onlinesurveys.jisc.ac.uk asking you to complete the survey.

Your feedback is important 

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey is the only national survey of postgraduate research students and so is the only way for us to compare how we are doing with other institutions and to make changes that will improve your experience in the future. 

The more PGRs that take part the better we can do that. 

Please take part

The survey opens on Monday 6 March 2023 and it takes around 15 minutes to complete. Your feedback is confidential to the research team and all reporting will be anonymous.
