University of Northampton Graduate School – 1st overall satisfaction in this year’s Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)
Message from Professor Matthew McCormack, Head of the Graduate School: The Graduate School has some excellent news to share: UoN has come 1st for overall satisfaction in this year’s Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES). Our PGRs have rated us in the top 8 in all categories, including 1st for “resources” and “responsibilities”, and 2nd for “progression”, “research skills” and “professional development”.
I would like to thank the PGRs for completing the survey and for rating us so highly. As always, we will analyse the results carefully and will work with you on any areas where we can enhance what we do. These results are a tribute to the strength of our PGR community, and the dedication of our supervisors, the Graduate School, and all those at UoN who work hard to support postgraduate research.
The University of Northampton is part of the East Midlands Doctoral Research Network, which consists of nine universities who are keen to work collaboratively to share best practice, resources and insights into doctoral research across all disciplines. The EMDoc Conference is a great opportunity for you to discuss and promote your research, as well as meet and network with other researchers from across the East Midlands. In this year’s Conference, you are invited to explore the theme of ‘Sustainability’ through oral and poster presentations.

Please also notify Linda Cooper in the Graduate School of your submission (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we are aware of all institution submissions.
