Results of the 2018 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)


Over 750 students completed this survey - thank you. The results have been shared with faculties who are considering the feedback raised and subsequent actions.

Student feedback through surveys like the PTES help the university to decide which improvements to prioritise.

The survey is run in cooperation with Advance HE, a charitable body funded by higher education institutions to improve learning and teaching, equal opportunities and leadership in higher education.  This allows us to compare our results with those of the sector and with similar groups of universities, such as London universities.

For example, the graph below shows that the 66% of Greenwich respondents who feel they are encouraged to be involved in decisions about how the course is run compares well with the HE sector response of 63%.

It also provides useful insights and highlights areas where our responses were behind the sector results and possibly a cause for concern.

Analysis of the comments in this survey illustrates the busy and complicated lives our students live, often with caring and work commitments alongside their studies, so it is not surprising that timetabling is more important than at some other universities.
