Coming soon: Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES 2023)

The University wants to ensure Doctoral Researchers have the best possible experience while studying at Loughborough.

To do this, we need to know what you think works well and what we could be doing better. This will help us as we look to implement the new University Strategy: Creating Better Futures. Together.

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) is the only national survey for Doctoral Researchers and runs every two years.

Your feedback is really important to us, as no one knows the experience better than you.

It not only helps us improve the Loughborough experience but can help us to compare how we are doing against other institutions and to make changes that will improve your experience in the future.

The survey opens 24 April and will run until 15 May. Eligible Doctoral Researchers will receive an email from with a link to complete the survey.

It takes around 15 minutes to complete, your feedback is confidential to the Doctoral College, and any reporting will be anonymous.
