United Arab Emirates

We value our links with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and we have welcomed students from UAE to Surrey for a number of years – we currently have over 50 students from the UAE studying here. Our beautiful safe campus is situated in Guildford which is just 40 minutes by train from London and close to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. If you have any questions about studying at Surrey, please contact your dedicated Surrey contact Sharath Meppallil or one of our student ambassadors. We also work with representatives, who can provide information and guidance on study opportunities at Surrey.
