What our students say

"One of the best things about the department is the approachability of the lecturers. They are always available, and more often than not, can offer advice on any issues, whether they are associated with your course or not! It is a department of which you feel a part, not only as a student, but as a person as well."

Rich Watts, MMath

"After taking two years off from maths I had a few problems to start with, but with help from the lecturers and the student-friendly atmosphere throughout the department, I managed to succeed at Surrey. The modular based course allows students to follow those subjects they find interesting and spreads the study load well through the year. I spent a fantastic four years here!"

Erica Denman, BSc

"The department offers a lot of support and guidance to students who want help or are interested in knowing more about the subject they’re studying. The university in general has an amazing atmosphere; I’ve joined a number of societies and am also on the committee of both Badminton (Treasurer) and the Mathematics Society (Vice-President)."

Andy Chan, MMath with Professional Training Year (Year 3)

"After A-Levels I came to Surrey as a fresh-faced young student, eager for a taste of university life. My time in industry was spent with SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals where, as part of the Statistics and Data Management Department, I analysed data from clinical trials. It was during this period and in my Final Year that I decided to continue my studies at Surrey. So now I am not so fresh-faced and working towards my PhD on chaotic dynamical systems."

Carl Bird, BSc

"I am from Sri Lanka and studied on the Mathematics and Computing Science degree. Before coming to Surrey I took the Foundation course, which I enjoyed very much. It did not take long to settle down on campus and I made many friends here, some of them from Sri Lanka. My lecturers and tutors were very helpful and interested in my progress. I was very happy with my course and my year of Professional Training."
