The University of Surrey is a global community of ideas and people, dedicated to life-changing education and research. With a beautiful and vibrant campus, we provide exceptional teaching and practical learning to inspire and empower our students for personal and professional success. Through our world-class research and innovation, we deliver transformational impact on society and shape future digital economy through agile collaboration and partnership with businesses, governments and communities. 

Set in the bustling town of Guildford in the heart of the south-east of England, the campus is just 10 minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre, which is alive with bars, restaurants and cafes. There is a frequent bus service between campus and the main railway station, running into the early hours of the morning. Heathrow and Gatwick international airports are also both within easy reach and London is also just a 34-minute train ride away.
 

University Facilities

The University of Surrey invests heavily in its facilities. The Ivy Arts Centre, the Manor Park student village and the Library & Learning Centre all represent major projects, with the recently-opened School of Health Sciences and student spaces, MySurrey Hive and MySurrey Nest, continuing the trend of investment. 

The University benefits from Surrey Sports Park, the £36 million world-class development that’s home to a range of professional teams, athletes and sporting events. There is a range of facilities including a 50-metre swimming pool, climbing wall, tennis and badminton courts, a 120-station health and fitness centre, three multi-purpose sports arenas, squash courts, ten grass pitches, exercise and fitness studio plus a bar and restaurant.

Student accommodation is grouped by band, with band A being the most basic for those on a budget and band F for those who want studio flats. Over half of the rooms have en-suite facilities.
 

Professional Training Year

The Professional Training placement programme at Surrey is one of the largest in the world, with over 2,300 partner organisations in the UK and overseas. Some of these include IBM, Barclays, Jaguar, KPMG and Warner Bros. The placement experience provides opportunities for any undergraduate student to put their skills into practice and to experience a real working environment, contributing to employability after graduation.

Figures from the 2020 Graduate Outcomes Survey published by the UK’s Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) reveal that the University of Surrey is ranked 12th in the country for graduate employability, with 96% of students in work or further study 15 months after they graduate.
 

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE?

The information on this page has been submitted by the higher education institution itself, and it varies how frequently they update it. If you want to know more, get in touch and one of our student advisors will answer all your questions!

Across the Pond is the official representative for this teaching institution for selected countries around the world which means we can help you apply to their courses and help with all the documents needed to submit an application. We can help answer questions about their courses and the institution itself as they do not necessarily have the capacity to deal with student enquiries from all around the world on a daily basis. This also means that they can ask us questions about your application and we can help explain if they are not familiar with your grades, academic background or the educational system in your home country. They also appreciate that students who apply through Across the Pond get the help they need, not only in terms of submitting the application and supporting documents, but also with everything needed pre-arrival in the UK, such as student accommodation, visa information, funding information and well as preparing for departure to the UK.
