We’re keen to make sure our postgraduate taught students have the best possible experience while studying with us. To do this, we need to know what they think works well and what we could do better.
The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is the student’s chance to tell us about their experience as a taught postgraduate student at Newcastle University.
The PTES launched in April and students will have already received an invitation from JISC to take part in the survey and also a further email on behalf of email@example.com with a personal link to the survey. To date, 13% of taught postgraduate students at Newcastle University have taken part in the survey.
The survey will close on 17 June, 2021, and is anonymous and will only take around 15 minutes to complete.
Find out more about PTES on the LTDS website and if you have any queries please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information gathering: future demand for online exams and in course tests
The eAssessment and Feedback Steering Group are currently gathering information about potential demand for online exams and in course tests in the next 5 years.
We are asking all colleagues who are interested in introducing a new online exam (whether for a new module, or a change to assessment method in a current module) to complete a short online form for each potential new exam.
The information collected will be used to gauge demand and assist in planning future provision.

Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey
Continue reading “April 2018 Learning and Teaching Newsletter”
We will shortly be launching this year’s Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES). PTES will open on Monday 16 April and run until Friday 15 June.
PTES is the only national survey of postgraduate taught students’ experience of learning and teaching. The results will allow you to compare students’ experience of postgraduate programmes both internally and against the groups of institutions so to make changes that better meet their future needs.
The survey is also an opportunity for students to voice their opinion and to be partners in developing the postgraduate learning experience. Information gathered helps us to demonstrate the quality of taught postgraduate degree programmes and show commitment to postgraduate education.
Please do all that you can to promote it. The more students that take part the better the picture we will get of the taught postgraduate experience at Newcastle.
