Why PTES matters

PTES enables us to gain insight into the learning and teaching experiences of taught postgraduate students and compare the results with other participating institutions.

Providing your feedback means you can help to make positive changes while you continue with your studies.

As a thank you for taking part there are incentives on offer.
