This research consulted Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and other stakeholder organisations about the feasibility of running a national student satisfaction survey for postgraduate taught (PGT) students.

Such a survey does exist at undergraduate level (the National Student Survey) and helps to inform student choice, as well as encouraging HEIs to improve their offer.

The recent Higher Education White Paper (2010) called for the Higher Education Public Information Steering Group (HEPISG) to consider whether such a survey should be introduced at postgraduate level, hence the commissioning of this research by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
