Isabelle Lavinya Van Huizen, Malaysian, 2nd Year BSc Food Science and Nutrition

I had received a few offers from universities in the UK to enter my second year of study in Food Science and Nutrition but I chose Surrey as it had the highest ranking compared to the other universities. From what I have read the employability rate for a graduate of Surrey is also high. Besides that, Surrey is in a good location which is only 30 minutes by train from London and yet not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of London.

My first thought when I arrived on campus was that it was big. It was definitely bigger than my previous university (University of Hertfordshire). There were so many buildings and I thought I would get lost in my first few days there.

I think my course is interesting and I am enjoying it. The lecturers are really good and dedicated to their fields of study. They support you well. I also know my personal tutor who is nice and helpful.

For my accommodation I am currently living in Guildford Court which houses 14 people in a flat. Living with so many people is a challenge sometimes as everyone is different and live different lifestyles. However, in my flat everyone gets along well with one another.  The other great thing about it is that it is right on campus and so there’s no need to leave early to get to class on time. It’s possible to leave the flat 5-10 minutes before class and be there on time.

I joined the Culinary Society and Jitsu. The Culinary Society provided opportunities to learn how to make food like mayonnaise and chilli con carne which is a really cheap and tasty meal which I had never heard of before I came to the UK. The sports facilities offered by the Surrey Sports Park are brilliant if you are into sports. I play badminton and squash every now and then with friends when we aren’t too busy with work or when we need a break from it.

One of the highlights of my time here in Surrey has to be going to watch Varsity (sports events versus Kingston University). I have never been to Varsity before and it was really interesting and great to be caught up in the whole atmosphere surrounding it. I also enjoyed the fireworks display organized around November.

My advice to other international students is to come to the UK with an open mind. Make friends with people of different nationalities and don’t just hang out with people who come from the same country as you. Embrace the different cultures and learn about them. Don’t just come here for a degree, come here for the experience, and leave with a degree and a different view of the world. Just make sure you remember that getting a degree is your priority.

Elaine Frances Fernandez, Malaysian, MSc Social Psychology

When I was looking to do a Masters in the UK I had offers from three different universities but the curriculum here at Surrey was the closest to what I was hoping to learn. Also, the staff at Surrey were very prompt and helpful and therefore I felt confident about the support that I would receive whilst studying here.

I didn’t see the University before coming here for my studies, but I did have a video call via Skype with the course director who was very helpful. He pointed me to the resources that I needed and made it easier for me to make my decision. As I have never studied on a campus before, the campus map was a life saver! The accommodation was very good and clean and the facilities looked great.

The first couple of days of my course were scary as I knew that it was a step up in academic standards. As I did my undergraduate degree in Malaysia, I was uncertain as to what the expectations of the UK system would be. What I found, though, was if you have the right skills then coping is not difficult, the key thing is having a willingness to learn. I found the lecturers very helpful and willing to respond to student needs, and would encourage students to approach them if they encounter any academic difficulties.

For fun I joined the Gospel Choir and the Malaysian Society. They are both very active, and hold lots of events. The Gospel Choir was a great break from my studies too. Members of the Malaysian Society are very close and supportive and the society is a good network to have for a little slice of home. In my free time I like taking walks to town – Guildford Castle is a particular favorite of mine, as the grounds are beautiful and it’s a great place to relax.

I would advise other international students to bring enough money to initially cover the first few weeks here. It takes about a week to sort out your banking, so it would be prudent to factor that in.  Also, it is not so easy to find a part time job as Guildford is a small town. If you are planning to look for part time work, start early!  I would also say don’t bring too much stuff. You will find that clothes and other utensils (rice cookers, kettles, etc.) are of good quality and are cheaper in the UK, so travel as light as you can!  Most of all, though, come prepared to enjoy yourself – Surrey’s student community is very active, and participating in uni life is the best way to expand your horizons, meet people from all over the world and make the most of your experience here. You won’t regret it!
