International Pre-Departure Guide
Congratulations on receiving an offer for a place on a programme at the University of Surrey.
The International Student Support team understands that leaving home, possibly for the first time, and moving to an unfamiliar culture can be both exciting and difficult at the same time. We have therefore put together this Pre-Departure website to help you make preparations for your new life in the UK. In addition, a short checklist and list of important information has been prepared for you to download or print out so that you can refer to it at any time before you arrive on campus and during your first few days at Surrey.
The International Student Support team is happy to help with any questions you may have, including immigration and visa advice, pre-departure information and lots more, and if we can’t help we will certainly be able to direct you to someone who can!
You can contact us by telephone, email or social media.

This checklist will help you make final preparations before you leave home. Print it or save it as a pdf on your mobile phone, tablet or laptop so that you can access the information at any time.
