LEVEL OF STUDY
Financial Mathematics BSc (Hons)
I remember my first day consisted of eight hours of lectures. I left thinking, 'It’s time to quit! I don’t understand it. Nothing makes sense. Why did I choose maths?' Fortunately, through some confidence-boosting from Dr Natalie Douglas, I powered through. Three years later, I graduated with a first-class degree. The maths department was massively encouraging; the staff never failed me whenever I needed help.
Economics and Mathematics BSc (Hons)
My best moment at Surrey was taking part in the study abroad programme. Thanks to this programme, I got the opportunity to see what it’s like to live independently and experience things that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to do.
Mathematics BSc (Hons)
Surrey helped my career by having the Professional Training placement experience on my CV. It was such a game-changer in interviews. Other candidates would reference university projects or modules, while I’d use real-world examples working on real projects. My placement helped me get ahead of the competition.
Mathematics and Physics MPhys
The academics on my programme know how to spark interest in students – even in an early morning lecture.
Mathematics and Computer Science BSc (Hons)
My time at Surrey made me see my strengths and my willpower to succeed, however hard at times I felt the various pressures around me.
Mathematics with Music BSc (Hons)
I’ve realised that getting every last ounce out of university life is crucial because these opportunities won’t come along again.
My lecturers and professors are brilliant and, better yet, incredibly dedicated to their fields.
Mathematics with Music
While an increasing number of universities offer similar opportunities, Surrey is the best because it provides lots of help in finding placements and it has excellent relationships with many companies.
My confidence increased tenfold during my Professional Training year and I’ve become much more driven. This led to an improved work ethic for my final year.
