The University of Surrey has an outstanding record for graduate employability.
Best University Placement Service
For a third year running we have been recognised as the Best University Placement Service (Over 750 Placements) at the National Undergraduate Employability (NUE) Awards 2021.
Our consistently high ranking is a result of our relentless focus on graduate employability and the success of our Professional Training placements, which we pioneered 60 years ago and in which we continue to be a world leader today.
Surrey is highly unusual in offering Professional Training placements to almost all of its undergraduates, regardless of their degree subject. More than 2,300 partner organisations work with us to give our students valuable work placements in the UK and abroad.
