University of Surrey


At the University of Surrey, we see things differently. Whether you picture yourself in a new career, want to pursue an academic passion, or strive to study somewhere where you can make a real impact, our postgraduate courses can help make your vision a reality.  Situated just 34 minutes outside London in the vibrant town of Guildford we welcome over 3,500 postgraduate students each year from all corners of the globe. We are proud to be one of the most culturally diverse universities in the country.

Whether you’re from the UK, the EU or further afield, you'll live, work and study with people from different backgrounds to your own. Our postgraduate student body is made up of individuals from more than 120 different countries, so you'll be part of a vibrant international community that exposes you to brand new ways of thinking.

Surrey's student accommodation is spread across its three Guildford-based sites and is grouped in friendly communities so that you can make friends, find support and enjoy your home away from home.

The University has more than 5,000 rooms in self-catered housing to suit different budgets, and many of the available rooms have an en-suite bathroom, Wi-Fi, 24/7 security and are within walking distance to the town centre. Postgraduate students can also opt to live in accommodation independent from the University.

The University of Surrey invests heavily in its facilities. In the last 10 years, it has spent £88 million on improving student accommodation, £36 million on the world-class Surrey Sports Park – which has a £500,000 gym, an indoor climbing centre, a 50m swimming pool and 10 grass pitches – and £16 million on the new Library and Learning Centre, which houses a huge collection of resources and is open 24/7 during term time.

The University of Surrey is committed to making sure that it offers support to students who might need it, so there are a host of bursaries and scholarships available from both the University and external providers.

As a postgraduate research student at Surrey, you'll be a part of work that's changing lives, with access to modern facilities and the chance to experience leading labs in the UK and overseas. You'll also work alongside scientists from the University and industries around the world.
