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 more than 140 different countries.

Preparing for a great career
At Surrey, we have an outstanding track record for graduate employability. 97% of our postgraduates are in employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes Survey 2020, HESA).

You’ll start preparing for your future from your very first day and will have many opportunities to boost your employability, from getting hands-on experience in industry to personalised sessions with our award-winning careers team.

Supporting you
We do everything we can to make you feel safe and happy during your time at Surrey. Our campus is like a home away from home and you’ll quickly become part of our community.

We have a dedicated student information and support hub, personal tutors who can advise you on your studies, as well as a multi-faith chaplaincy.

Student life
Life at university is more than just studying - we make sure that your university experience is as varied and fulfilling as possible.

Our Students’ Union has exciting clubs and societies for you to join and meet new people, and organises events throughout the year.

Our student accommodation is spread across three Guildford sites and is grouped in friendly communities so that you can make friends, find support and settle into your new home.

We have over 6,000 rooms in self-catered housing to suit different budgets, many with en-suite bathrooms. You’ll benefit from great wi-fi, contents insurance and 24/7 security, as well as being close to beautiful Guildford town centre. You can also opt to live in accommodation outside of the University, which we can help you find.

At Surrey, everything you need is all in one place, from teaching facilities to food outlets and a convenience store.

We invest heavily in facilities for our students. In the last 10 years, we’ve spent £88m on improving student accommodation, £36m on our world-class Surrey Sports Park – which has a wide range of classes, a 120 station gym, an indoor climbing centre, an Olympic sized swimming pool and 10 grass pitches – and £16 million on our Library and Learning Centre, which houses a huge collection of resources and is open 24/7 during term time. Most recently, we’ve invested £6m in our new School of Health Sciences facilities and developed two new student social and study spaces, MySurrey Hive and MySurrey Nest.

Financial support
There are a host of bursaries and scholarships available to help you, from both Surrey and external providers.  

And to help with some of your course costs, we provide free digital textbooks. This is part of our commitment to making university more accessible for everyone.
