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 students, to help you make the most of university life.

Why should you study here?

100+ taught masters programmes

Across our three faculties, we offer over 100 postgraduate courses, all of which can be personalised to your interests and goals. You’ll learn from academics who are experts in their fields.

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. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework, 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 practice-based learning. We have a huge range of professional-standard facilities, such as labs, workshops and studios, where you can develop your skills and learn by doing. Psychology students, for instance, can conduct experiments in dedicated labs, featuring a virtual reality suite. Language students can practise in dedicated simultaneous interpreting labs, equipped with ISO-certified tools that are commonly used for major multilingual events.

Shortlisted University of the Year

You can expect to thrive in a dynamic academic community which The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 recognised in their shortlisted for University of the Year. 95% of our graduates are in work or further study fifteen months after graduating (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2023). We’re the winner of 2022 awards for the Best University Careers/Employability Service (National Undergraduate Employability Awards).


Our campus is home to all the facilities you’d expect from a world-class university: a fully equipped modern library, a buzzing Students’ Union, and a wide choice of shops, cafes and student services.

But Surrey’s facilities stand out for two reasons.

Simulated learning environments

Firstly, 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.

Surrey Sports Park

Secondly, Surrey Sports Park, located on our Manor Park site, is one of Europe’s leading sports venues and has set a new benchmark for the quality of university sports facilities in the UK and beyond. You’ll find a 50-metre swimming pool, 120-station gym, and a host of indoor and outdoor pitches suitable for a wide range of sports.

A great place to live

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.

International support

Whether you need support with your learning, guidance on careers or a friendly ear and practical advice for day-to-day issues, we’ve got you covered.

Get support and advice 24x7 on study issues and personal matters via our MySurrey online portal or in person at the MySurrey Hive.
