ConsExpensive, some facilities are very dated

What made me choose it? I selected the University of Surrey to do International Hospitality Management (at the School of Management). The Battersea Polytechnic Institute was granted university status in 1966 by Royal Charter. “Yuk” I hear you say! “Polytechnic?” Don’t let that fool you; Surrey...

I started at Surrey University last October (2009) to do a BSC in Psychology. The grades to get into Surrey have just become higher so I had to get two As and a B at A-Level to do Psychology when in other universities it can be much lower with 2 Bs and a C. From this I thought it must be an...

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the University where I was a student in the 70s with a group of students who are taught by me. The university is situated within easy reach of London, yet the city of Guildford is just a short walk away. The University has a growing reputation - now...

I started at the University of Surrey in September 2005 on a Law course. Due to circumstances at the time, I was not able to visit the University on an Open Day. My first thoughts as I was driven through the campus on my first day was that it looked clean and pleasant - there's lots of trees on...

I didn't particularly enjoy my time there but looking objectively, I can honestly say that it is a decent university. COURSES: Everything is very organised, most of the degree courses are modular and it will be quite easy to follow the syllabus and get yourself ahead and organised if that is how...

ProNear London, large student union.

ConsPrices in the area.

First they change the in name to UniS after a logo competition, then they build part of a boat as the new European Institute of Health and Medicine Studies...and next they let the same architect build a train to go with it as the new on site accomadation block...not that that's going to well...to...

“Surrey University”

published 11/07/2000

ProClose to London but still cheap

ConsEverywhere you walk you are on a hill

Surrey University (or UNIS as it wants to be know these days) has basically something for everyone. Firstly, the beer is fairly cheap, the newly refurbished union is always welcoming and the increasingly lively town of Guildford is only a ten minute walk away. You are only five minutes walk away...

ConsEXPENSIVE

I graduated from uni last summer (2005) and did a four year course with a placement - something which I'd definataly argue as a strong point as all students are offered to opportunity to incorporate a year in industry. This has proven critical for many of my mates when getting a job and you can...

Whether you have a good experience or not at this university is definitely dependent on what you make of it. I personally had a very bad experience at this university but that was down to a lot of personal issues. From an objective point of view Surrey is a pretty decent university. Most of the...

Pronice campus, good university

Consa bit pricey, slightly apathetic nature

Consvery commercialised, to experimental

The newest master strike of the University of Surrey's marketing team was dedicating the university's abrreviated name (UniS) to University of Success. Whilst this sounds like a bad commercial advert - and appears about as annoying as reappering adverts on telly when walking across the university...
