About us


At Surrey, we are in the business of developing young minds. This journey doesn’t just start at 18 when a student enrols in their first year – a sense of intrigue and passion for a subject, as well as a belief that accessing further education is possible, must be cultivated at a much earlier age.

Working with schools and colleges

We work with over 16,000 local school and college students each year, both on and off campus, for a variety of fun educational events.

Widening Participation

At Surrey, we run comprehensive widening participation and schools liaison programmes, which aim to give students from different backgrounds access to higher education and facilities. Additionally, a range of revision conferences and sixth-form lectures are on offer throughout the year.

Widening participation and outreach is an important dimension of the University’s work in raising aspirations and attainment for students from a range of backgrounds, particularly those from non-traditional backgrounds, under-represented groups and students with differing needs.
