Postgraduate Research Experience Survey 2021

The ICR has been ranked top for overall student experience in the UK Postgraduate Research Experience Survey.

In their responses, our students spoke positively about the ICR's open, supportive and collaborative research environment, as well as the opportunities it offers to develop skills and knowledge to build their research independence.  

Building on consistently strong ratings, 2021 satisfaction rates were also high for supervision, showing that our supervisors and their wider teams are fulfilling their crucial roles in supporting students.
