Postgraduate Research Student Comment Themes and Categories

In our work with AdvanceHE to analyse all of the free-text data from their national Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) we developed a new categorisation structure that currently encompasses 26 categories of student comment under 9 high level themes. The themes cover a wide range of topics specific to the postgraduate research student experience.

We can adopt such a comprehensive set of categories at Student Voice because our machine-learning powered classifiers automate the process but even if you are labelling by hand then hopefully the below will give you some inspiration.
