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 staff and students, Surrey achieves great things.
As well as high-quality teaching, the university provides access to plenty of academic support services and resources. International students can receive help with their language skills, and there are many services in place to help them easily settle into university life.
There’s also a wealth of career support available. Students from all subject areas can benefit from business support and entrepreneurial guidance. Everyone can explore different ideas, develop desirable business skills and enhance their graduate prospects. Our track record for graduate employability is one of the best in the UK, with 95% of our postgraduates in employment or further study within 15 months of graduating - Graduate Outcomes Survey 2023.
