"I chose the University of Surrey as my firm choice as it was ranked number one for my department, was affordable in terms of tuition and accommodation and offered a safe campus environment. It also offered the option of an industrial placement in the third year which would help with work experience upon graduation. The University offered guaranteed accommodation to all International students for the duration of the entire course, and its proximity and easy access to London were the other reasons I chose Surrey.
As I walked into campus I was impressed by its picturesque view and landscape. I love the campus and it turned out to be everything I had pictured! The teaching facilities impressed me and I in particular enjoyed the microbiology, chemistry and physiology labs during my first year. The experience gained not only gave me the practical aspect of what I learnt but also the confidence to carry out experiments. My personal tutor and lecturers on my course have been very friendly and approachable.
For anyone who makes Surrey their choice I assure you, you will love it! Walk in with a positive attitude and join in the variety of clubs, societies and sports and make friends. Studying is your first priority but you need to keep some time for relaxation and socializing as well, and Surrey has it all!"
