Our faculty brings together scholars and students from across an extraordinary range of academic disciplines in a learning community that is dedicated to the discovery and enrichment of the arts, humanities and social sciences. We are artists, entrepreneurs, scholars and practitioners working on the pleasures and challenges of our times.
Each year we welcome more than five thousand bright and dedicated students onto our degree programmes. Our teaching is recognised to be amongst the very best in the country, and we are proud of our contribution towards Surrey being the University of the Year for 2016.
Our students know that strong ideals must be coupled with excellence in practice. Surrey’s professional training year gives students the opportunity to work outside the University, but as part of their programme of study. Our approach to learning sees students apply their theoretical learning to current world problems. We take great pride in our commitment to our students and from their achievements. Our alumni hold senior positions across the world and we are proud of the contribution they make to society.
In FASS we believe in the importance of research in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Our staff come from many backgrounds and countries, forming a wonderful community of thinking and tackling the challenges facing the world today. We see strength and only benefit from our diversity. The research we undertake covers a huge range of subjects, but is united by a desire to promote a good life for our students and society.
