University of Surrey
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.
The University of Surrey, named as University of the Year by The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016, 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, moved up to eighth place in the Complete University Guide 2016 and achieved eighth position in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2015. In the recent National Student Survey we attained fifth place out of 139 institutions (excluding specialists) across England, Scotland and Wales, and the QS World University Rankings place us in the top 1% of the world's universities.
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 in England.
