During your time at Harper we do have to ask you to complete a few essential surveys.
The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is run by the Higher Education Academy together with Harper Adams, to ask about your experiences of your postgraduate taught programme.
Surveys of this nature provide universities with information that they can use to improve the experience of postgraduate taught students in future. The overall aim of the survey is to identify, at both a local and national level, areas where improvements could be made and efforts targeted to further enhance taught degree programmes. The results will, therefore, be used both nationally as well as incorporated into the annual course report, and associated action plan, for the Taught Postgraduate programmes at Harper Adams.
We have currently achieved the highest response rate for the last five years so I have a target to meet!
Module surveys will be sent to you directly by email once the relevant module assignments are available for collection. It will only take five minutes and your feedback will be used to help tutors revise arrangements in the longer term review of programmes for 2017/18 and beyond.
Finally – but not by me - all leavers will be contacted by letter in the Autumn or Spring after their graduation by University staff collecting information for the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey. We will initially contact you by letter, and then follow up by telephone or e-mail if we do not hear from you. Please could you take ten minutes to help us by filling out this short survey. Your answers help us to find out what our graduates are doing, and how useful you found your course in preparing you for employment or further study.
Please take the time to complete these surveys – they are important.
