Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) gathers insight from higher degree research students about their learning and supervision experience. Developed and administered by The Higher Education Academy (HEA), the PRES has been deployed in the UK biennially since 2007. The PRES survey focuses on students' experience of:

  • supervision
  • resources
  • research community
  • progress and assessment
  • skills and professional development

Participating in the PRES allows ANU to benchmark higher degree research students' experience against comparable international institutions such as Russell Group universities.
