Applying through UCAS
You can only apply to study our undergraduate degree courses through UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service.
You can find the UCAS code for your chosen course in the 'course options' box on the relevant course page. Find your course.
Surrey's UCAS code is S85.
Your UCAS application is made online. You don't need to complete the form all at once, you can save your application and return to it once you have all the information you need.
You can apply to up to five courses. You don't have to give an order of preference until you've received your offers. The universities you apply to won’t see your other choices until after you have replied to your offers. Once you’ve submitted your application, UCAS will send universities your details.

Applying for foundation musical theatre and acting?
If you're looking to apply for one of our musical theatre or acting foundation courses you should apply directly to the University of Surrey, rather than through UCAS.
UCAS opens for applications September for entry the following year.
15 January is our application deadline for all courses, except for veterinary medicine and science which has a deadline of 15 October.
We give all applications we receive before this date equal consideration. Any applications we receive afterwards we'll consider on a first-come, first-served basis.
30 June is our final application deadline. After this date, we'll consider applications for Clearing.
On 25 February UCAS Extra opens. If you have used your five choices and do not hold any offers, or you have declined all your offers, you can now add another university of your choice.
UCAS personal statement
Your personal statement is your opportunity to show what a great student you’ll be and persuade your chosen universities to accept you on to their course. Admissions tutors may use the personal statement to compare applicants, so make sure yours stands out.
As the same personal statement is submitted for every course you apply to, avoid mentioning any universities by name. If you're applying to study a mix of different subjects, you should write about common themes such as problem solving and creativity.
- Find useful tools to help you write your personal statement on the UCAS website.
- You can also read our top tips for writing a personal statement.
