When students come to Surrey we want them to challenge what they know and to discover their capabilities. We want to maximise their potential and help them develop a competitive edge for the future. We are committed to helping them achieve their goals and to working with them every step of the way – through to graduation and starting their career. Surrey is unrivalled in its position with the best graduate employment record within 6 months of graduation of any UK university over the past 15 years.
Entering Higher Education brings students into a world full of opportunities and possibilities – academically, socially and financially. University life will provide your son or daughter with the chance to become more independent and free-thinking. It will enable them to study the subject they are passionate about and become more focused on the type of career they would like to pursue after university.
It’s a challenging time too – both for the student and their family. Our students’ wellbeing is crucial to us and throughout their time at Surrey, we ensure that they have access to a wide range of services and personal support. However, we also recognise and value how vital the continuing support of family members is to the student’s enjoyment and success - which is why we’ve developed this website. Besides providing an introduction to key topics such as enrolment, the Surrey experience and the support we offer for our students, it also provides useful links to more detailed information and contact details on our main website.
I do hope it helps to answer any questions you may have about student life at the University of Surrey.
If your son or daughter chooses to study at Surrey we look forward to welcoming them and doing our best to ensure they enjoy and make the very most of their time with us.
