The Office of Postgraduate Studies (PGSO) administers the survey to all graduating research postgraduate (i.e. MPhil and PhD) students to collect feedback on their program of study. The questionnaire covers all aspects of their study experience at HKUST, including thesis supervision, coursework, professional development training, career development and overall learning experience with HKUST, etc.
Data collected for RPG students graduated in every academic year is tabulated with assistance from Office of Institutional Research. The trend analysis and tabulated results are then shared with Schools and departments in aggregated format.
