University of Surrey Telethon Campaign

During November and December, we’re running our annual telethon, this sees university students ring our alumni to update them on news from Surrey and ask for a donation to our Forever Surrey Fund.


Last year, we raised an incredible £160,000 which helped:

  • 58 students who were in serious financial need due to unexpected circumstances, such as parental bereavement or sickness, were provided with a life-changing hardship grant.
  • 13 students  from disadvantaged background who were given a bursary to complete their training year in industry – drastically improving their employability prospects.
  • 18 student clubs and societies, who were given funding to give our students the chance to achieve remarkable accomplishments in a range of diverse fields.

Your donation could make a real difference to the lives of Surrey students. Fund out more in our video below:

If you are selected to be called you will receive either a pre call letter or email from the Advancement team notifying you, if you have any questions about the campaign do not hesitate to get in touch via
