Our Professional Training placement programme is admired by other universities around the world.
Over 1,000 partner organisations work with us to provide students from all parts of the University with vital experience of the professional environment. What makes our Professional Training placements so good? They’re built into your degree programme, not bolted onto it.
Best research in key areas

£12m Ivy Arts Centre and Guildford School of Acting; £36m Surrey Sports Park, host to 15 teams; £35m 5G Research Centre for the next generation of mobile communications; £47m School of Veterinary Science; £70m Manor Park student village; £13m new Library & Learning Centre.
We have some of the best new academic, library, sports, arts and accommodation facilities of any university in the UK, as well as one of the most envied Professional Training placement programmes in the world. This combination of prestige, expertise, resources and lifestyle is unique, and it’s all to be found here in the beautiful countryside of the Surrey Hills just half an hour from central London.
