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 equip our students for personal and professional success. Set in the bustling town of Guildford in the heart of the southeast of England, the University is easily accessible by road and rail with great connections to London. Just a 10-minute stroll from campus, Guildford town centre is alive with bars, restaurants and cafes.
At Surrey, we prepare students for the world of work and the vast majority of our students take up Professional Training placements as a part of their degree. We’re known for our outstanding graduate employability figures, with the Higher Education Statistics Agency revealing that 93 per cent of Surrey’s 2017 graduates were in work or further education six months after they graduated. In the QS World Employability Rankings 2019, Surrey has been ranked 1st in the UK and 7th in the world for work placements and research partnerships with employers.
Surrey was recognised as an ‘outstanding’ institution when it received a prestigious Gold award in the first ever Teaching Excellence Framework, which is testament to our passion for inspiring our students and preparing them for a bright future.
