Our students share their thoughts and feelings about what makes Surrey so right.
LEVEL OF STUDY
Surrey has high student satisfaction and a great School of Law. For an aspiring lawyer this was a great mix, as I knew I'd be in an environment where I could flourish academically but also be emotionally supported. At Surrey I believed I would find this - and I have!
My lecturers completely love what they do; they don’t just want to teach you, but give you their ‘all’ in the subject.
During my Professional Training placement, when I witnessed my analysis being used to undermine the Prosecution’s chief witness it gave me the confidence to know that I was capable of working in this profession. I am very grateful to my placement supervisor and all I learnt from him in that year.
The teaching staff at Surrey were phenomenal and clearly all enjoyed their jobs, which shone through during lectures and seminars. The teaching allowed me to pick up complex legal principles more easily. Great teaching really does make all the difference.
Doing a Professional Training placement is the best decision I have made since coming to university; the value of the knowledge it gives you is unprecedented. I could not recommend it more.
My favourite moments were the unplanned ones, the ones where we just stayed in or had dinners, took a break from work, where we discussed our plans for the future and encouraged each other, knowing those were big dreams, but looking forward to turning them into reality.
I have learnt that if you take advantage of everything that is offered to you – and Surrey has a lot to offer – you really can achieve things you never believed you were capable of.
