Eligible students can now complete the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) to provide valuable feedback about their experiences at Loughborough.

The survey asks about the entire experience including learning and teaching, assessment, organisation, opportunities for engagement, learning resources, skills development, and support services.

Such feedback allows us to keep doing the things our students love and make improvements where necessary.

As a result of previous feedback, some of the positive changes the University has made include:

  • investment in teaching and learning facilities
  • developing bespoke training sessions for postgraduate programme representatives to ensure they effectively represent the views of our postgraduate community
  • changes to modules to include more applied, practical and vocationally relevant content and opportunities
  • increased library provision of information skills teaching on postgraduate courses.

PTES is the only national survey for taught postgraduate students and enables the University to compare the experience of Loughborough postgraduates against others across the UK.

It takes around 10 minutes to complete and the feedback is confidential to the Student Surveys team and any reporting will be anonymous.

If you are eligible, you will receive an email from with a unique link to the survey.

PTES opens on 3 May 2022 and will run until 17 June 2022.

If you would like to know more about the survey and the improvements that have been made at the University as a result of student feedback, please visit the dedicated webpage.
