Still deciding what to study? Explore our undergraduate degrees.

Subject talks

Our subject talks give you an insight into what it’s like to study at Surrey, as well as information about the modules you could take, our facilities and Professional Training placement options.

You don't need to book a place in advance for our subject talks (excluding veterinary medicine) - seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis on the day.

Please arrive for subject talks no earlier than 10 minutes before published talk time. Room locations are marked on the open day campus map, which you will receive when you check-in on the day. Our staff and students will also be happy to offer further directions or help with any queries.

Please be aware that space can be limited so we can admit one family member/friend per prospective student for our subject talks.

Veterinary medicine talks take place on the Manor Park campus. Find out more about Vet School open days talks.
