Each year the University of Surrey welcomes over 4,000 postgraduate students, from more than 120 countries worldwide. The university prides itself on its excellent international community, celebrating cultural diversity of all students and staff.
The university has a rich history, originally dating back to 1891 when the university’s forerunner the Battersea Polytechnic Institute was founded. In the early 1960s the institute was moved to a larger site in Guilford and in 1966 was officially established as the University of Surrey with the grant of its Royal Charter.
As a research-led university, Surrey's outstanding contributions benefit society as a whole and address major global challenges. The research-intensive learning environment makes it the perfect choice for students wanting to study somewhere where they can make a real impact.
