As the majority of our Higher Education users have now been migrated to the new version of BOS (onlinesurveys.ac.uk), the national benchmarking surveys conducted annually by the Higher Education Academy and Vitae will, from 2015, be run solely in the new version.
These surveys include:
- Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES)
- Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES)
- United Kingdom Engagement Survey (UKES)
- Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS)
- Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey (PIRLS)
These national surveys exploit a popular feature of BOS that allows a group of institutions to run the same core survey and then anonymously compare results. Specific subgroups, such as the Russell group or regional groups like GW4, can be also be set up alongside the larger benchmarking group.
|Survey||Template||Launch date||Close date|
|PTES||January 16||February 2||June 18|
|PRES||February 13||March 2||May 14|
|UKES||January 19||February 2||June 18|
|CROS||February 16||March 1||May 31|
|PIRLS||February 16||March 1||May 31|
