Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)
Why take part in the PRES?
London Met is committed to providing an excellent journey for our Postgraduate Research students and the PRES provides a valuable tool for students to feedback on their time here. The results help us compare how we are doing with other institutions, to make changes that will improve what we do in future and to keep doing the things that you value. The results from last year's survey informed the changes we were able to implement this year.
We listen to, learn from and act on student feedback and value the time you take to provide it.
All your responses will remain strictly anonymous – at no point will you be identified to us.
How do I take part?
You will receive an email with a link to the questionnaire on Monday 2 March 2020. Simply click on your unique link, enter in your username and password and complete the online form. It's very easy to do and only takes about 10 minutes to complete.
The survey is open until Monday 23 March 2020.
Complete the survey within the first week (before the end of the day on Monday 9 March) to be sure to claim a USB mobile power bank worth £10 (or until we run out!). Just visit us in the Research and Postgraduate Office (in AB1-28) with your completion email to claim your gift.
Where can I take part?
That's the great thing about it - you can take part anywhere and on any device however, by taking the survey in the designated Library Rooms, Drop-In Sessions or just before or after one the PGR training sessions, you can be sure to pop in to the Research and Postgraduate Office straight after to collect your powerbank.
What happens to the results?
Your feedback is important. We use the findings to improve the learning experience and environment for current and future students.
As a result of feedback last year, we developed and introduced:
- a comprehensive PGR Student Training Programme
- designated study rooms
- the Research Student and Staff Forum
- Inter-Library Loans
- a more in depth Induction programme
Is it anonymous?
Your survey response is confidential to the team processing the results and no reporting outside of this team will identify any individual. Any results communicated to teaching staff will be anonymised.
The survey asks that any comments you make should not identify yourself or any specific members of staff.
Where can I find out more?
If you are unsure about anything to do with the survey, or have any difficulty, please visit us in the Research and Postgraduate Office in AB1-28, speak to your supervisors or get in touch:
When will winners of the prize draw be announced?
Winners will be notified on or before Wednesday 1 April 2020.
After the PRES
The survey closes on Monday 23 March. When we get the results, we will analyse the points raised and work on developing an action plan based on your feedback and where we can make improvements.
We aim to provide details of the survey and the results in June 2020.
