Study

We were the first academic centre to focus on the environment and sustainability back in 1992. We have a vibrant, interdisciplinary research community tackling the biggest issues faced by society globally and host high profile guest lectures from government and industry.

What we have to offer

We offer professional development where delegates may choose whether simply to join a module for the experience of the teaching or choose to undertake assessment of their learning. We also host an annual Roland Clift lecture which is presented by a different speaker each year to discuss aspects involving environment and sustainability.

Outstanding teaching

Based on the evidence available, the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Panel judged that the University of Surrey delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK.

Equality and diversity

We are delighted to announce that we retained our Athena Swan Bronze Award in April 2018 from the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) for our progress and commitment to equality and diversity within our centre and the wider university. Participation in the Athena Swan Charter is a key part of our ethos here and every day we work to build on this.

We have an active LGBT+ Student Society here at Surrey. Our LGBT+ representative Jonathan Chenoweth welcomes any queries if you want to find out more about how we support our LGBT+ students and we encourage any disabled students to contact our disability representative Moira Foster to discuss their needs.
