In2Surrey is the University of Surrey’s contextual admissions and transition programme, coordinated by the Widening Participation and Outreach Team. It is designed to support eligible students in their preparation for studying at the University of Surrey.

What are contextual admissions?

The University of Surrey is committed to social mobility and believes, to have a diverse and representative society we must ensure all learners with the potential to succeed at University can do so regardless of their background or personal experience.

As part of this commitment to widening participation, we use contextual admissions. This is where we use additional information, like socio-economic factors, to understand the context in which applicants have achieved their qualifications, enabling us to identify performance and potential.

You may be eligible for a contextual admissions offer if you are a UK domiciled student and meet the criteria. Please note, subject requirements may not be reduced in the offer and grades will be reduced by up to two A-level grades, or one BTEC grade or equivalent. Contextual offers are made to home students only.

Eligible applicants will be contacted by the University of Surrey and/or the Widening Participation Team directly to receive further information.
