Our students share their thoughts and feelings about what makes Surrey so right.
LEVEL OF STUDY
As an international student, the University’s dedication to making me feel at home has been remarkable. Dedicated services and resources, coupled with a commitment to inclusivity and cultural diversity, eased my homesickness. The University of Surrey ensured that my experience as an international student was more than just studying abroad – it was about finding a new home away from home.
To this day, I am very grateful to have chosen Surrey: a place to grow personally and professionally.
The people I met at Surrey both by living with them in halls, meeting them at societies, or on my degree programmes, including lecturers and staff, have played such an incomprehensible part of my life. My years spent in Guildford and at Surrey will be deeply etched in me for all of my life to come, and I cannot express my gratitude enough. #ForeverSurrey.
It was clear that Surrey is an academic hub with a brilliant reputation for research
Moreover, the flexibility offered by my department to study and research areas I am specifically interested in made the overall experience enjoyable socially and academically.
Many on my course chose to do a placement instead of a dissertation, which is an excellent way to expose students to real-world experiences. The faculty has in-depth knowledge, which allows every student to get the most out of any course offered by the Department of Politics.
I feel immense pride when I say that Surrey is my alma mater and will always be indebted to this place for what it gave me; my home away from home.
