University of Surrey

  • Description
  • We are a global uni­ver­sity with a world-​class research pro­file and an enter­pris­ing spirit. Inven­tive and forward-​thinking, our her­itage shows a recur­ring theme of going our own way, doing things dif­fer­ently – and achiev­ing notable results.

    We pro­vide a dis­tinc­tive blend of aca­d­e­mic knowl­edge, pro­fes­sional insight, and can-​do con­fi­dence to those study­ing and work­ing with us. Staff/​student exchanges and research col­lab­o­ra­tion are devel­oped through our land­mark part­ner­ships with Mass­a­chu­setts Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, Cal­i­for­nia Insti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Los Ange­les and North Car­olina State Uni­ver­sity. In only the sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tion of its kind to be approved by the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment, the Sur­rey Inter­na­tional Insti­tute offers joint under­grad­u­ate degrees with Dong­bei Uni­ver­sity of Finance and Eco­nom­ics in China, giv­ing UK stu­dents the oppor­tu­nity to study at the Dong­bei cam­pus and vice-​versa.

    Hold­ing an unri­valled grad­u­ate employ­a­bil­ity record for a decade, our dis­tinc­tive posi­tion has been con­sol­i­dated through an over­haul of the Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Pro­gramme, result­ing in a fur­ther increase in grad­u­ate employ­ment for 200708.

    Ground-​breaking research at Sur­rey is bring­ing direct ben­e­fits to many spheres of life – help­ing indus­try to main­tain its com­pet­i­tive edge and cre­at­ing improve­ments in the areas of health, med­i­cine, space sci­ence, the envi­ron­ment, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, defence and social policy.

    Our strik­ing, mod­ern cam­pus has seen sig­nif­i­cant devel­op­ment in recent years and by 2010 our Manor Park site will be home to the multi-​million pound Sur­rey Sports Park pro­vid­ing a world-​class sport­ing facil­ity for our staff, stu­dents, and the local community.

    Surrey’s out­look is bright; the recent sale (sub­ject to reg­u­la­tory approval) of Sur­rey Satel­lite Tech­nol­ogy Ltd, is believed to be the largest ever cash real­i­sa­tion of any UK uni­ver­sity spin-​out and is the lat­est of our many com­mer­cial successes.

    We have embarked on an ambi­tious agenda that is envi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able, finan­cially robust and advances our inter­na­tional impact within higher edu­ca­tion. If you are con­sid­er­ing Sur­rey as prospec­tive staff or stu­dent, we warmly invite you to join us.
