Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)

From the 1 February until 30 April we carry out a range of surveys.

Why have I been chosen to do the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) survey?

You’ve been chosen to do the PTES survey because you’re a Postgraduate student and we want to know how your time as a student with us has been. We will be asking all students, like you, to fill in the PTES survey so we can understand everyone’s view.

What is the PTES survey?

The PTES survey gives you a powerful voice to help shape our institution and lets us know how we're doing, where to make improvements based on what you’ve told us, and where to celebrate our achievements.

The PTES Survey asks you to answer a range of questions covering your University experience so please remember to think about all of your time with us when filling in your answers.

How do I complete the PTES survey?

All you need to do is go to feedback and pop in your student ID number to open the survey window. We ask for your student ID number to make sure you get the right survey popping up (there are 4 others besides UoD open right now), it is then wiped so everything you write is anonymous.

What’s in it for me?

The survey asks you to answer a range of questions about your experience as a Postgraduate University of Derby student.

Please note that only your first survey completion will be recorded. If there is anything else you want to tell us after you’ve completed the survey, you can email us at

As a ‘thank you’ for filling in the survey you’ll be entered into a draw to win your choice of one of three:
• Graduation Package (free gown hire, photography package, guest and ball tickets)
• Experience Voucher (fancy a go at abseiling or mountain biking?)
• Cash prize

If you've got further feedback throughout the year you can email
