The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) launches on the 5th March so if you’re eligible to complete this year’s survey you should be able to access the survey by logging into My Manchester and you should also have received an email by now with your unique survey link.
The University takes part in PTES to make sure that we understand the differing experience of students as they undertake their Master’s. As part of Your Say for Your Uni this, alongside other University-wide surveys (including the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey and NSS) are an important tools for you to have your voice heard. The feedback is completely anonymous and positive or not, listened to. However, we need as many of you as possible to complete the survey to give us the clearer picture of what is working, and just as importantly what isn’t.
By understanding your experience, how you are finding things like your workload, the facilities you have access to and the quality of your feedback, we can make sure that our resources and efforts to improve the student experience are focussed in the right way.
University-wide changes have been made to facilities, services or learning experiences as a result of feedback and include things like improvements to feedback times and the creation of the Atrium, and welcome desk in University Place – creating a one-stop-shop for information, advice and guidance services. At course level there are examples of the introduction of work experience placements, the movement of course handbooks online and improvements to social spaces – developments all instigated by the feedback of the students on those courses.
