University of Surrey

United Kingdom (UK)

At the University of Surrey, we share our knowledge and make new discoveries through our innovative research, business collaborations and teaching. We inspire people to do wonderful things, and help them to acquire the tools they need to make a meaningful contribution to the world.

Wonder should be at the root of all research. At the University, our research is having a practical and positive impact on people’s lives, touching communities around the world. With over 50 per cent of all research outputs featuring an international co-author and more than 100 strategic partnerships across the globe, international activities have become increasingly important.

Our students are inspired by award winning academics who teach the essential life skill of how to learn while also undertaking research that is changing lives. Personal and professional development is embedded at the heart of our students’ learning experience. Exceptional teaching and knowledge is put into context through our pioneering Professional Training placements. We are proud to be No 2 for graduate employability compared with other chartered Universities.

We’re connected to the local community, the regional economy and the wider world by our fundamental desire to collaborate. Whether partnering with the biggest names in technology and communication to building the 5G Innovation Centre on our Guildford campus, hosting 110 high-tech companies on our own Research Park, or stimulating over £1bn of economic activity in the southeast of England every year.

The University has risen in all major league tables for UK universities in the past year. We climbed from sixth to fourth place in the Guardian University Guide 2016 and moved up to eighth place in the Complete University Guide 2016. In the recent National Student Survey Surrey we achieved fifth place out of 139 institutions (excluding specialists) across England, Scotland and Wales.
