The University of Surrey has a long history of welcoming international students worldwide. Surrey has a vibrant Nigerian community of over 160 students, and we highly value our connections with Nigeria. We regularly visit schools and universities and attend exhibitions in Nigeria. If you have any questions about studying at Surrey, please get in touch with your dedicated Surrey contacts or one of our student ambassadors. We also collaborate with representatives across Nigeria who can offer information and guidance on study opportunities at Surrey.
