LEVEL OF STUDY
My time at Surrey has had a profound impact on my employability post-graduation. The course content, which is always up-to-date with the latest trends, has equipped me with cutting-edge knowledge and skills.
Since graduating from Surrey I have worked in sea turtle rescue, hands-on marine mammal care, ocean conservation and biology education... We need passionate people in these fields, now more than ever!
Doing a Foundation year, you experience multiple lecturers as well as guest speakers; the wide range of specialists willing to offer assistance puts us students at an overwhelming advantage.
Ever since I stepped foot on campus for the first time, Surrey felt like a home to me. With everyone at the university being so friendly and helpful I had no doubt, I’d have an incredible experience by choosing to study here.
The university has a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. The student community is diverse, and there are numerous opportunities to meet people from different backgrounds.
I enjoy the freedom of Literature that Surrey encourages, allowing me to explore various avenues such as creative writing, broadening my interests and skills.
My main role as a creative producer was to create 25 or 30 second trailers for National Geographic shows. It was an amazing opportunity; as part of my role I had a lot of creative freedom and had to come up with concepts, pitch them to the managers, and then edit and write the script for the promos.
It’s just incredible to be able to write my own work and explore different formats. I’ve always been a prose writer, but by my final year I’ve written poems, short stories and scripts as well.
One of the highlights of my placement at GlaxoSmithKline was the additional skills I didn’t expect to learn in a lab-based setting, such as procurement, project management, event planning and EHS engagement.
