We firmly believe that excellence in research and teaching in the twenty-first century can only be achieved with an international dimension.
Our global strategy
The University of Surrey will be widely recognised, particularly in Asia, the Americas and Europe, as a leading university that is globally renowned for excellent research and teaching. Our mission is to project Surrey to the world and to open our doors by creating an environment where the University, our staff and students can achieve their greatest potential and, through their skills and knowledge, positively contribute to society at a local, national and international level.
"The aim of the global strategy is to promote the delivery of internationalisation through the integration of an international, intercultural or global dimension into the purpose, function or delivery of academic activity, while maintaining academic quality. The strategy is cross-cutting here at the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences as well as at institutional level. Hence it sets out to deepen and extend the core strategies of research, learning and teaching with a commitment to excellence in research, teaching and the staff and student experience in key international regions and institutions."Prof Yang Gao, Associate Dean (International), Professor of Space Autonomous Systems
