Postgraduate Research Experience Survey 2011

Our annual survey of postgraduate research students helps us improve postgraduate provision at Edinburgh.

Postgraduate research students in lab

Students are asked about a range of key issues including facilities, staff support, skills and professional development.

The questionnaire identifies areas where improvements could be made and helps us target efforts to improve the student experience.

The survey is run by the University together with the Higher Education Academy.


If you are a postgraduate research student at Edinburgh you will receive an email inviting you to participate.

You will only be able to access the survey via the unique link emailed to you.

If you haven't received your invitation and think you are eligible, please contact Susan Hunter.

The questionnaire should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete.
