So glad I decided to come to Surrey! The campus is beautiful and in such a good location; everything you need is within walking distance (or at most a short bus/car ride away), and not too far for a daytrip into London or the south-coast. For me, the campus and town are a perfect size, not too large but there is still plenty to do and the nightlife is fantastic. Surrey Sports Park boasts amazing facilities. The student union is great, with a wide range of sports and societies on offer. Being a Chemistry student I have found the teaching facilities, staff-quality, course organisation, careers services and just about every other aspect of life at Surrey to be of a really high standard.
