Welcome to the University of Surrey, a global community of more than 16,000 students from 140 countries.

We’re based in the popular town of Guildford, just 35 minutes from central London by train. Our beautiful, green campus is home to outstanding learning facilities in every faculty, plus a comprehensive range of student services, a wide choice of accommodation and dedicated support for international students, to help you make the most of university life.

100+ taught masters programmes

We have three faculties within the University: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences; Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

Together, they offer over 100 postgraduate taught courses, all of which can be personalised to your interests and goals. You’ll learn from academics who are experts in their fields. Many remain active in their professions, and because they’re always developing their knowledge, they’ll teach you the most up-to-date information you need to get started in your career.

World-leading research

Our research seeks to answer global challenges, drive innovation and deliver real-world impact. We have more than 1,300 postgraduate researchers across 100+ different research centres and groups.

Surrey is home, among other facilities, to the world’s leading innovation centre for 5G/6G research, an internationally renowned clinical trials unit, and the STAR LAB for space robotics. We also have two pan-University institutes, taking multidisciplinary approaches to major societal issues: the Institute for People-Centred AI and the Institute for Sustainability.

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework 2021, 41 per cent of our submitted research was rated as world leading.

Commitment to practice-based learning

The University of Surrey stands out for its commitment to exceptional teaching and practice-based learning. We have a huge range of professional-standard faciliti

es, such as labs, workshops and studios, where you can develop your skills and learn by doing.

In addition, across the campus you’ll find amazing simulation facilities: a fully operational pilot process plant, wind tunnels, flight simulators, a courtroom and a Clinical Simulation Centre, home to our Immersive Learning Environment that’ll transport you to the centre of clinical scenarios. These provide a safe, supervised environment to put your skills and knowledge to the test and conduct innovative research.

A great place to live and learn

Across our lovely, leafy campus, you’ll find a fabulous choice of places to eat, drink and hang out. As well as a selection of shops and cafes, there are also facilities like The Snug, a bookable student space with huge comfy sofas, an 85” screen and PlayStation.

There are more than 170 student societies – perfect to help you find a new hobby or pursue an existing passion with like-minded people. If you’re looking for an active lifestyle, the University of Surrey also has over 40 sports clubs to join based at the Surrey Sports Park on campus, which also hosts a 50m swimming pool and 120-station gym.

The Students’ Union also organises unforgettable events and volunteering opportunities to ensure you have the best possible university experience.

With so much happening on campus, it’s easy to see why so many students want to live here. There are more than 6,000 study-bedrooms on campus, at least half of which have an en-suite shower and toilet. There are choices to suit all budgets and requirements and you’re guaranteed university accommodation in your first year as long as your application arrives on time.
