LEVEL OF STUDY
The university’s outstanding record for graduate employability, perfect balance of rural and city life, and proximity to London were all factors that contributed to my decision to make Surrey a top choice.
Every project I did on placement involved an element of collaboration, and the leadership, communication and teamworking skills I gained have really supported my group project work.
University is great for gaining a whole range of knowledge you need, but a placement year gives you the chance to develop on a personal level and use that knowledge to create real world impact. At its core, engineering is about solving problems, and a placement year gives you the perfect opportunity to do that.
I chose the University of Surrey because of its reputation for excellent academic quality and top-notch career and employability services. Surrey Business School holds top spot in various reputable global university rankings... and Surrey’s Employability and Careers team was awarded the Best University Careers/Employability Service in the UK.
I knew Surrey would be a good place to do a PhD as the Institute for Communication Systems is a world-leading research centre with an outstanding reputation.
Having an experienced supervisor in my research area has been invaluable to me throughout my PhD journey... their unwavering support and encouragement have significantly boosted my self-confidence, especially in times when I needed it the most.
I am currently in the process of collecting my current results to create an academic paper, and I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the help of all my supervisors. I feel very supported by them.
The University of Surrey demonstrates a strong commitment to inclusivity and support for minority groups on campus. I was particularly impressed by an inclusive meeting that aimed to gather suggestions and advice regarding our students' needs.
At Surrey, I opened myself up to new opportunities and experiences which translated into the job I have today. I think I enjoy my current job much more than I would have if I had restricted myself to a certain path.
