Find out about the ways that we can offer online activities and resources.

AIM4University

AIM4University is a seven-week programme designed to provide advice, information and mentoring (AIM) to support post-16 students with their UCAS application, personal statement and much more.

The programme is flexible and tailored to fit student needs; the mentoring service matches applicants with a current University of Surrey student who can share practical advice towards structuring their application in addition to recommendations towards work experience, reading and references. Students will also get ahead in their preparation by receiving invitations to attend exclusive weekly webinars on areas such as personal statements, applying for student finance and university life.

Furthermore, participants on the programme will be invited to attend exclusive campus visits as well as appointments with our student success advisors to learn more about the pastoral support available at the University of Surrey.

Student feedback

"The programme was very helpful and I am more confident and prepared for university now."

"Using Brightside to communicate with our mentors who know first hand what the process of getting to university is like was the most helpful."

"UCAS personal statement webinar was amazing alongside personal finance."

European Connect

European Connect is a three week research project connecting you with likeminded students from across Europe. You will be matched based upon subject interests and will collaborate towards the completion of a group project and presentation as facilitated by one of our current students at the University of Surrey.

You can expect to receive academic feedback on your presentation in addition to invitations to attend exclusive webinars covering topics such as personal statements, student finance and student life.

Student feedback

“I believe the programme was highly beneficial and enriching to be able to discuss with other team members on a wide variety of topics.”

“As a program, it allowed me to learn so many things without being under pressure. It was amazing!”

“I would just like to thank the administrative body behind the European Connect programme as it was an extremely productive way of furthering my education.”

This programme was recognised by the Office for Students as an example of best practice during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Webinars for Year 12 and 13 students

Our webinars have been designed to guide and support you through the important decisions and milestones needed prior to starting university. You will have the opportunity to speak to our support staff, connect with our current students and have your questions answered during each session.
