PTES (Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey)...
PTES (Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey)
You may have noticed that there are a lot of surveys relating to your experience here; perhaps there are too many, but here is one more! PTES is a national survey of postgraduate student experience, and we try to take actions that take into account the results of this survey. For example, a few years ago we had quite bad results under PTES for our ACS and IT Management programme; we made a whole series of changes the following year, and the result improved.
To encourage you to complete yet another survey, everyone who completes the survey can have a #5 voucher for the Byte Cafe ... so a coffee and a cake, or a sandwich and a drink. Please bring along evidence that you have completed the survey to the Student Support Office.
Complete the survey at: my.manchester.ac.uk
The Student's Union is organising The Manchester Teaching Awards to allow you as students to recognize teachers who have gone the extra mile to enhance your learning. These awards are designed to give you a say over your education by highlighting the student-perspective on good teaching practice. If you would like to nominate someone, please see the additional information at:

If you’re leaving us this summer it would be great to know. I have created a couple of questions for you which will determine how we can assist you. If you have no idea what you want to do, we are the best port of call, as we can talk through your options and help point you in the right direction. Also check out our Mock Assessment Centre, open to all year groups. Employers will be asking you to assessment centre and one of the tricky parts is the group exercise, working in teams to establish and outcome on a time restraint. Students often struggle with this as they haven't had a practice before. Come along to our popular Mock Group Assessment Centre to get to know what to expect from employers. Accenture and BAE Systems will be here to provide hints and tips from an employer perspective. To confirm your attendance visit Careerslink and search for event ID 3974. We will be feeding you too!
