Our annual survey of taught postgraduate students helps us improve postgraduate education at Edinburgh.

Students are asked about a range of key issues including facilities, staff support, skills and personal 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 taught postgraduate 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.

Participants will be entered in a prize draw to win an iPad 2 or £50 Amazon vouchers.
