Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) 2021

Have your say

PRES will launch on 12 April 2021 for postgraduate research (PGR) students to complete.

Look out for an email from the University containing your unique link to the survey.

We are keen to make sure our PGRs have the best possible experience while studying with us. To do this, we need to know what you think works well and what as a University we could do better. This is your chance to tell us about your experience as a PGR at Bournemouth University.

Thank you to all PGRs who completed the 2019 PRES survey – we listened to you and your feedback has helped us to enhance your PGR experience in a range of areas.

This year the survey will open on 12 April 2021 and close on 17 May 2021. It will take around 15 minutes to complete. Feedback is confidential and any reporting will be entirely anonymous. We also kindly ask that all supervisors encourage their PGRs to participate in the survey.

How do I complete the survey?

You will receive an email from on 12 April 2021 that contains a link, unique to you, to access the survey. If you can’t find this email, contact and we’ll help you to get access.

We will be making a £1 donation for every survey completed on your behalf, to the student mental health wellbeing charity, Student Minds.

We hope you take the opportunity to get involved this year and help us make improvements to your experience.

Best wishes,

Doctoral College
