The University of Surrey celebrates 50th anniversary

The University of Surrey invites students, staff, alumni and community to celebrate 50 years of excellence

13 October 2016

University of Surrey campus

On 9 September 1966 the Queen granted a Royal Charter, establishing the University of Surrey. Construction for the new campus began shortly after on a site close to Guildford town centre. And in 1968, students began to arrive on the new University campus for the first time.

The University of Surrey has continued a strong history of research in the sciences. In 1971, the University appointed the UK’s first female Professor of Physics, Daphne Jackson. And in 1981, the University launched its first small satellite, UoSAT-1, with the help of NASA. The University of Surrey was also awarded its third Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2011, for research into provision of safe water and sanitation.

The University of Surrey ranks in the top 10 by all major league tables. In 2015 The Times and The Sunday Times awarded University of the Year 2016 to the University of Surrey.

This year, the University of Surrey celebrates 50 years of excellence. With events in Guildford and worldwide the University of Surrey invites staff, students, alumni, and the local community to celebrate this special anniversary.

Celebrations begin 22 October with the 50th Anniversary Celebratory Procession. The procession marks 50 years to the day since the installation ceremony of the inaugural Chancellor. Family-friendly activities will be happening along Guildford High Street all afternoon. Expect entertainment from student societies, the “Spot the Stag” treasure hunt competition and giveaways.

The procession begins at St Mary’s Church at 10:30, traveling up Guildford High Street. Bring your blue and gold flags to cheer on our students and staff.

The 50th Anniversary Celebratory Procession marks the start of an exciting programme of events happening throughout the year. Events will include alumni receptions happening worldwide and the Wonder Festival in May. The University has created a special anniversary website, including an interactive timeline and event programme.

What are league table rankings?

League table rankings are lists of universities ordered, or ranked, according to various criteria. These rankings are released every year and usually created by newspapers, governments or academics. Each ranking calculates their table with specific requirements, but all look at similar qualities. Student satisfaction, graduate prospects and grades are just a few of the qualities rankings look at. Some rankings only look at universities in the UK, while others evaluate universities worldwide.

League table rankings are a reliable way of comparing universities to help you identify the best options for you.

The Guardian University Guide 2017

Tips for your September arrival at the University of Surrey International Study Centre

Here are some tips to help you get ready to study in Guildford, Surrey.

19 August 2016

University of Surrey campus

With September just about the corner, now is the time to start preparing for your exciting journey to Guildford! If you’re feeling a little nervous, take a breath and relax. We have gathered some tips to help you prepare and settle into life abroad.

At the University of Surrey International Study Centre, term starts Monday 26th September. Be sure to arrive on time for induction at 9am.

Be prepared

We recommend flying into London Heathrow or London Gatwick airports, as they are the closest international airports to Surrey. Before catching your flight, you’re going to want to be sure that you have everything you need. You’ll be able to buy most things you need once you arrive, but there are some things you will need to bring from home.

Before you leave:

  • Confirm your accommodation
  • Book your flights
  • Complete the pre-arrival form
  • Book your taxi transfer

It is really important that you make copies of all your documents. Different documents will be needed throughout your journey to Guildford and during your first week.

What to bring with you on your first day:

  • Evidence of your Secure English language test
  • Passport and visa
  • Sponsor letter (if you are being sponsored)

Make sure you’ve downloaded our pre-arrival guide. This guide covers what else you will need and the documents you will want to carry with you while travelling.

Get involved

After you’ve arrived and settled in, take this opportunity to meet your classmates and say hello to your new neighbours. The other students will be feeling many of the same things you are. Talking to each other will help to ease any nerves.

During your first week you will have a complete introduction to the University, Guildford and the International Study Centre. This week is often called “induction”. Throughout the week there will be a range of fun activities for new students. Be sure you arrive on time and prepared for induction. After induction you will have the opportunity to find scheduled events on campus and clubs or societies to join.

Explore

After you’ve met your neighbours and attended induction, you might have some extra time to explore your new home city. Guildford is a large town with a bountiful history and a reputation for fine arts.

For first time visitors, guided city tours can be a great way to learn the layout of your new home. Guildford has a great transportation system, including buses and two railway stations. Guildford railway station provides quick and easy access to London or Portsmouth.

Happening in September & October:

  • Surrey Game & County Fair – A great opportunity to experience the rural life of Surrey and the rural traditions of England. There will be all forms of rural activities, including falconry, vintage tractors, food, dog events and much more.
  • Guildford Book Festival – Through a week of workshops, courses and talks in October to celebrate literature and the creative process.
  • Farnham Food Festival – For one day, Farnham becomes a bustling hub of food and live music, just a quick train ride outside of Guildford

Remember, no matter how you choose to spend your free time, your fellow students are feeling nervous too. It can be hard being far from home. Take some friends with you to explore! Keep in mind, our International Study Centre staff are always available to help.

A new bus service makes it easier for students to travel in the evening

19 November 2014

Surrey

The University of Surrey already had easy transport links to the local town, Guildford, and to London. However, the local bus company, Arriva, has taken this even further, introducing a later service between the campus and Guildford on Wednesday and Friday nights (or Thursday and Saturday mornings).

Introduced to bring students who have been out for the evening in Guildford or those returning from London, the service provides a safe way home for students until 2 am.

Munya Mudarikiri, the Students' Union’s vice-president for welfare, said: “The night bus will allow students to get home quickly and safely after a night out and is an easy and value for money solution.”

The service adds to the existing frequent bus routes and trains to and from London, making Surrey a well-connected campus university for students who want to visit the local area whilst studying.

League tables are lists of universities which are ordered, or ranked, according to various criteria. Rankings are usually compiled by magazines, newspapers, governments and academics, and released annually. Each calculates their league table differently, but they all look at student satisfaction, student to staff ration, graduate prospects and entry grades. Some rankings, such as The Times/Sunday Times, evaluate universities in the UK, while others assess institutions around the world to compile world university rankings. Rankings are a reliable way of comparing different institutions and identifying universities that are strong in the subject area you are interested in.
