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.

BSc (Hons) Psychology
3.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
3.0 / 1 review

Psychology is an interesting subject but must be taught well to keep the interest up. We have had a mixture of lecturers, with some being excellent and unfortunately more of them being poor (featuring behaviour such as playing with the lights, not making eye contact, giving one hour lectures, reading off the slide etc.).

This course is very full on-even from day 1! It is very practical and the facilities are top notch. There is a nice amount of live animal handling, however there could be more. Staff are willing to help and will work with you as much as they can but you need to want to, you won't get chased up too much. Within the students, there is such a friendly, family atmosphere. Older students will help the younger students (there is a peer support scheme) so even though at the start it is quite overwhelming, you get the support you need.

BSc (Hons) Computer Science

Overall, the course is well structured and the complexity increases gradually over time. I'm fully satisfied with the lecturers and the support provided. After the lectures there are labs or tutorials which enhance your understanding of the material. As a practically oriented degree the assessment includes not only exams but also individual or group courseworks.

Professional & Industrial Skills For Career Development
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

This module focuses your learning during the placement year to increasing your understanding of the workplace. there is lenience within the module to which reports you write but all reports give you an insight into health and safety as well as structure of a company. It also increases other soft skills like presenting, report writing, communication and the course works well to improve these

Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics 1
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

A very difficult module, especially as it is undertaken by first year students. It is challenging and the exam is hard as well but it is taught by an excellent professor, Dr. Alan Packwood. Fluids is based mainly on mathematical formulas namely the bernoulli equation whilst thermo is based more on theory
