Student Surveys

The student surveys from Advance HE have engaged with over 170,000 students over the last 2 years.

COVID-19 update

PTES, PRES and UKES are still going ahead this year. The full fieldwork period began in early February and many institutions have already begun their surveys. At the moment there are no plans to extend the periods, which already run as far as mid-May for PRES and mid-June for UKES and PTES. Our windows are flexible – institutions, can start, stop and pause the survey as they require. Closing on this date will allow us to provide results by the end of the academic year as planned.

However if you feel that, for example, extending the survey periods into the summer could help students have a better opportunity to take part, please contact If there is widespread agreement to this, we will consider this

We have developed an FAQs document to support participating institutions over this period. You can access the FAQs here.
