The University of Surrey is one of the UK’s top professional, scientific and technological universities. Named as The Times and Sunday Times University of the Year 2016, Surrey has a world-class profile and a leading reputation in teaching and research.
Campus and location
The University of Surrey’s beautiful campus offers students the best of both worlds. Our safe, self-contained student community is just ten minutes’ walk from Guildford town centre, named the eighth best place to live in the UK in the Halifax Quality of Life Survey 2015.
It takes just 34 minutes to reach London from Guildford station. Whether heading up for a show, a sightseeing tour, a night on the town or a spur-of-the-moment day trip, Guildford is an ideal base for exploring the city.
Internationalisation permeates all that we do at Surrey, contributing significantly to our mission to solve global challenges, lead research and innovation, and fuel generations of students with a spirit of curiosity and a desire to improve the world we live in. We encourage students to take advantage of our international connections and explore the world.
University of Surrey research is addressing this century’s most pressing challenges, fuelling students with a spirit of curiosity and drive to improve the world. In the 2014 Research Exercise Framework (REF), 98 per cent of our research outputs were rated to be world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised in terms of originality, significance and rigour.
With students from over 120 different countries, we’re proud to be one of the most culturally-diverse universities in the UK. Specialist staff in our International Office are here to help your throughout the application process – from advising on choosing the right course to applying for a visa and preparing for your first few weeks at Surrey.
