Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2012
The national Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) has now opened for King’s students, and we strongly encourage you to contribute to this.
PTES is the only national survey to gather taught postgraduate students' opinions about their experience at university and college, and is run by the Higher Education Academy. You will receive an email from the College (to your King's account) containing a unique user name and password and a direct link to the survey.
Further information about the PTES and what has been done in response to last year’s survey is available at the College's Quality and Student Survey webpages, and at the School of Arts & Humanities' Student voice webpages.
Like the Staff Student Liaison Committee, this survey is an opportunity for you to have your say on your education. Your comments will be used to build on past successes and argue for future improvements. The results of the survey are not published, but the programme and the College will be benchmarked against other Russell Group universities and similar degrees.
The scope of the survey includes not just assessment-related teaching, but also the variety of study skills sessions, cultural events, special lectures, talks by industry professionals and conferences that are made available to you by CMCI.
The survey is an online questionnaire and consists of a number of multiple choice questions. It should only take about 15 minutes to complete, including time to write free text comments.
