The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine has once again performed extremely well in the annual PTES results.

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine has once again performed extremely well in the annual PTES [Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey] results. CMVM earned an 88% overall satisfaction rate, which is higher than the 82% Russell Group average.

Furthermore, several online programmes earned scores of 100% in overall satisfaction. These results are a reflection of the hard work being done by our postgraduate teaching staff year-round – congratulations to everyone involved on this wonderful achievement.


We are delighted to hear that our students were so satisfied. It is very clear to us that this would not have been achievable without all of the tremendous hard work put in by our lecturers and tutors, as every member of our team has contributed to the students’ experience and overall satisfaction. We want to say a huge thank you to all of our tutors and team members, and to the students for being so engaged and managing what has been a very difficult few months.

We are delighted that so many of our students took time to give feedback on their experience on the MSc in Paediatric Emergency Medicine Online Learning Programme. It is gratifying to see the positive response and know that the programme is helping doctors from around the world improve and develop their knowledge and skill set, allowing them to perform to the highest level in their field.  It reflects both the engagement of our students and the support provided by all our staff.
