Each year the University of Surrey welcomes over 4,000 postgraduate students, from more than 120 countries worldwide. The university prides itself on its excellent international community, celebrating cultural diversity of all students and staff.
The university has a rich history, originally dating back to 1891 when the university’s forerunner the Battersea Polytechnic Institute was founded. In the early 1960s the institute was moved to a larger site in Guilford and in 1966 was officially established as the University of Surrey with the grant of its Royal Charter.
As a research-led university, Surrey's outstanding contributions benefit society as a whole and address major global challenges. The research-intensive learning environment makes it the perfect choice for students wanting to study somewhere where they can make a real impact. There are three faculties within the university: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
The university is located just half an hour outside London in the historical town of Guildford. There are three sites here: Stag Hill – home to a beautiful lake and lively Students' Union, Hazel Farm and Manor Park – which boasts a host of student accommodation and the university's £36 million Surrey Sports Park.
All sites are within walking distance to the centre of Guildford, where students and visitors will find plenty of shops, a cinema, sporting outlets and even an ice-skating rink. The high street is lined with restaurants, bars and pubs, which are popular with students in the evening.
Every year the University of Surrey welcomes over 3,500 postgraduate students from around the world. With students from over 120 countries learning on and off site, anyone looking to study a postgraduate course at Surrey can look forward to being part of a diverse and international community. As well as being part of the wider community, class sizes at Surrey are small to ensure students have one on one support from lecturers and are able to get to know and build relationships with their fellow students.
Surrey is unique in the outstanding level of career development support available to students, including the Student Enterprise programme. Students also often benefit from visiting lecturers and industry experts, giving further insights into their field of study and potential career options for the future. Postgraduates at the university of Surrey can be sure to feel supported every step of the way.
