"Surrey is not just a place where I have furthered my education - I have become much more self-aware and understand what I want to make of my future and how to achieve it."

We value our links with Pakistan and we have welcomed Pakistani students to Surrey for a number of years – there are currently more than 50 students from the country studying here. Our beautiful safe campus is situated in Guildford which is just 40 minutes by train from London and close to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Applicants taking non-UK qualifications must obtain a suitable equivalent for entry to undergraduate and postgraduate study at Surrey. The below shows the relevant grade equivalencies for your country.
The Intermediate/Higher Secondary Certificate is not suitable for first year entry. You can, however, take a preparation programme at the Surrey International Study Centre which will prepare you for an undergraduate programme at Surrey.
Holders of Bachelor’s degrees in appropriate subjects from a government recognised University will be considered for postgraduate Masters programmes. Holders of Masters degrees will be considered for MPhil/PhD study.
For courses that require a 2.1, students will need to achieve a GPA between 2.8 - 3 (70%-75%) from a three year Bachelors or a GPA between 2.6-2.8 (65%-70%) from a four year Bachelors.
For courses that require a 2.2, students will need to achieve a GPA between 2.6 - 2.8 (65%-70%) from a three year Bachelors or a GPA between 2.4 -2.6 (60%-65%) from a four year Bachelors.
To benefit fully from a degree programme at the University of Surrey, all students will need a good standard of English.
The School of English and Languages offers English language preparation courses all year-round, including the summer (pre-sessional) courses for students who do not have the level of English required to join a degree programme directly, or for students who meet their degree programme requirements but want to improve their English and study skills before the start of the programme. The type of course offered to you will depend on the level of your English - a fee is charged for these courses.
The School also offers a free English Language Support Programme (ELSP) to students throughout their time at Surrey, and is open to anyone enrolled on either an undergraduate or postgraduate course.
You can find more information here about English language support both prior to and after arrival at Surrey.
If you are interested in coming to study at the University of Surrey, you can find all information you need about applying for a visa (including Tier 4 applications) here – whether you are applying from your own country, or are already in the UK studying at a different institution.
We strongly advise that you never allow anyone else, including an agent, to submit a visa application for you without first checking that all your necessary documents are correctly included.
If you receive an offer to study on one of Surrey’s undergraduate or postgraduate courses, you can find all the information you need in our newly updated International Pre-departure Guide.
Designed and produced by our International Student Support department, the Guide is dedicated to helping you prepare for, travel to and settle in at Surrey, and includes details of how to access support and advice from our friendly, professional team throughout your time with us.
