# Complete the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)

PTES is your chance to tell us about your overall experience on your course so far (not just individual modules that you evaluate in your MEQs).

# Questions to expect

Questions are based on a range of themes: teaching and learning, engagement, assessment and feedback, dissertation, organisation and management, resources, support, skills development. Each set of questions are quick to answer and focused on finding out the experience you have had on your course.
