Collaborations in Lifelong Health

The University of Surrey maintains close links with a wide variety of health partners and public groups to ensure our activities are driven by real-world challenges and can have the maximum impact for our local community as well as the wider global population.

Our collaborations


Our rich and diverse international partnerships are often a result of individual connections. The University supports and encourages the formation of such connections with partnership engagements such as the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and the University Global Partnership Network (UGPN) which includes UGPN Joint PhD studentship arrangements.

We have strong national and international One Health collaborations, enabling agile responses to novel challenges such as the recent development of a rapid test for COVID-19.


Health service users and the general public 

At the University of Surrey we value input from health service users and the general public and have a number of public engagement groups and activities to ensure we can discuss our work with them.  For example, the School of Health Sciences' Service User and Carer Involvement group (SUCI) and the Surrey Healthy Ageing Research Partnership (SHARP).
