Feedback from PGR students is strongly encouraged. Please come along to the PGR Student Forum which runs three times a year. Jessie Durk is your PGR representative.
Launched in 2007, the HEA's biennial Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) is the only sector-wide survey to gather insight from postgraduate research students about their learning and supervision experience. Feedback gathered during PRES enables QMUL to identify areas of strength, and also those areas which can be improved, to enhance the overall experience of the Postgraduate Student.
