Description In HKUST, all TPG programs are required to carry out an exit survey. Most programs collect feedback from their graduates using the standard TPG exit survey questionnaire or its revised version to meet the program's evaluation needs. About two fifth of the programs conduct their own exit survey using their own questionnaire.

The standard questionnaire has 11 questions, which collects students' feedback on various aspects of their TPG programs, such as program quality and support.

At the close of each round of data collection, anonymous response data and tables of results of the survey will be made available to schools, departments, TPG program directors and the Office of Postgraduate Studies (PGSO). A consolidated response data set and annual report for each program is also prepared after Summer term data collection.
