Student Academic Experience Survey (SAES)
The annual Advance HE-HEPI Student Academic Experience Survey shows how full-time undergraduate students rate their time in higher education and their attitudes toward policy issues that impact them.
Our Survey takes place at the same time each year among a directly comparable undergraduate sample, enabling us to measure genuine like-for-like changes. This year’s results highlight encouraging signs of recovery from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the student academic experience.
Equality in higher education: statistical reports
Every year, Advance HE’s Research team produces a series of statistical reports on equality for staff and students in UK higher education.
Our 14th national staff equality data report for higher education institutions (HEIs) aims to assist the sector in better understanding the main equality challenges for staff and students, directing future efforts to overcome them.
Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)
The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) provides robust, benchmark data from a large number of institutions across the UK and beyond to drive enhancement of the Postgraduate Research Experience.
The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) 2021, is the largest survey of its kind, exploring the views of almost 40,000 postgraduate researchers from 94 institutions.
Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)
The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is the only UK higher education sector-wide survey to gain insight from taught postgraduate students about their learning and teaching experience.
This report presents the sector findings of the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES), aggregating results from all participating institutions in the sector and providing the most comprehensive picture of the postgraduate taught experience.
UK Engagement Survey (UKES)
The UK Engagement Survey (UKES) is the only nationwide undergraduate survey to focus on student engagement.
This year's results highlighted that engagement among Black, Asian and minority ethnic students remained higher than for their white counterparts, despite ongoing challenges posed by the Black, Asian and minority ethnic attainment gap.
