If you could change one thing about your experience as a postgraduate taught (PGT) student, what would it be? Let us know by taking part in our second survey as part of our new Policy Inquiry into the PGT student experience.
In Term One, we decided it was time to launch a Policy Inquiry into the PGT experience at Royal Holloway because we feel this is an area of the student experience that is often overlooked by both the University and the Students’ Union. We want to better understand your experience to make positive changes. We launched a survey in November which asked PGT students about their experiences in Term One and shared the results in February. We also ran a focus group in March where we talked to current PGT students in person and learned more about their experiences in greater detail. Thank you so much for engaging with us! The insight we have gained into your experience so far has been fantastic and we are excited to launch the next stage of this project!
This survey is the second of three we are launching this year to track a complete PGT student lifecycle in a single academic year, and it is just one of the many ways we are seeking to gain more knowledge about your experience at Royal Holloway. All the surveys touch on different themes and elements of your degree programme throughout the year. A few questions from the previous survey have been included to track progress over the year and note any changes in student satisfaction. Moreover, we have included some questions from the previous survey for only January starters via a logic skip to capture elements of their Term One experience for the report. The survey will be open until 11 May, and it is open to all PGT students. We will be giving away prizes (1x £100 and 1x £50) to two randomly selected respondents.
Take the survey
We will analyse the results and share them with you before the publication of the final Student Voice Report as we did with the last survey. We also have a final survey which will be sent out over the summer and will ask only a handful of questions about your experience with working on your dissertation or major project. We will also ask whether your expectations have matched your experience. Look out for it in the summer!
Following this final survey, we will collate all the data and publish a Student Voice Report, which will include a list of recommendations framed around issues of key importance for both the University and the Students’ Union with the hope they have a significant and long-term positive impact on current and prospective postgraduate taught students at Royal Holloway.
