I love it here at the University of Surrey. I love that there are many bus stops dotted around the campus with buses arriving fairly frequently. The scheme of providing us with free fruit two days a week is very helpful, since buying fruit can taking up a fair amount of our budgets. The various fairs and activities the University arranges are also extremely helpful in finding our what we want to do with our lives and how to go about it.

I hope this review will get information for people who plan to or think about choosing University of Surrey. I find lectures and academic support are great. I have no issue about this. However, parking is another problem. All students have raised the concern that if you live on campus or GU1, GU2, you are not allowed to get your cars on campus. Therefore if you plan to stay and be back with your family during weekend. Being mindful about their rules. I got ill for 3 months last year due to walking under the rain and cold of UK, all I got when emailing transport team is a silence and they ignored me and my health concerns. This issue was raised by my knowledge from 2019. They said university tries to reach net zero goal and physical and mental healths of their students are what they are sacrificing for the goal. I wish they achieve the goal after sacrificing so many like that.

The university's finance department is utterly useless. I am a PhD student and for the last three years I have been raising this concern through all relevant channels, but if anything, they appear to be getting worse. Everyone I speak to at the university knows that the finance department are useless. They have contributed significantly to my level of stress. They have always said that they are understaffed, but the whole finance system needs a major overhaul with the aim of improving transparency. If anyone with the power to influence change is reading this, please raise this to the relevant people.

Perfect university if you're looking for something student-orientated, the care and attention given to student life is top notch on top of the student academic support, great facilities that are being improved constantly, accommodation is good and within reach of tesco, lidl, and city centre by bus or walking. Overall very chill location but only a half and hour train ride from London if you're looking to see new places. Post graduation services seem useful, you get the sense that its a very employable university especially if you do a degree with placement year.

Societies are a hit and miss. Had a terrible experience with the Surf society 21/22 regarding some kind of sexual abuse. It's minor but still, nobody should have to go through that and then be ignored. The committee and president generally only cared for people in their friendship group and didn't bother helping out new surfers despite advertising themselves as welcoming for all levels of experience. I didn't learn a thing nor did I get to surf for more than 2 hours total on two trips. The committee are mostly the same for next year (one member being pretty much bullied into leaving and a couple have left), so I hope they would have improved by 22/23. Other than that, the uni is ok. The only amazing points are the modern and seemingly luxurious amenities as well as the high job offers and placement opportunities. Of course, this was only one society and I joined a different one. Most people are nice but this is just a heads up to potential surfers on the off chance they read this.

Accommodation is awful and isolating. Rent averages £600/month for a room in a shared house. Like an overpopulated mini London where everyone is cold and cruel because no one has any personal space whatsoever because the campus and facilities are pushed far beyond their maximum occupancy. Buses are always late. Rail is always on strike or late. Nothing to do in town. Student union club always sold out and their weird sex fetish themed nights every week are total cringe. Everything is overpriced. PGRs in my department all live outside of Guildford because it's too expensive to live in town so you never see other PGRs, their "student rep" is a joke who does the absolute bare minimum to connect the PGR community. My department has no seminars or anything so no reason for any other PGRs to ever cross paths. I was denied access to facilities/equipment critical for my research project but undergrads are allowed to use everything. NHS services are stretched thin. Place is a diploma mill.

Some of the lecture rooms are old and frankly too small. Societies within this university is great, however, it’s rather expensive if you want to join sport society. Careers service shows no support whatsoever. There are some area in the campus have no Internet connection. The management have clearly shown very little support regarding students mental and physical health.

So far as I write this, Its a shame to say Im really disappointed with going here. The campus is beautiful and Guildford is nice between countryside and London. The management of this Uni is somewhat disgraceful. They do not seem to care about your welfare, and I have had many issues with this uni from accommodation managers who don't care once you pay the bill, and consistently demand it. Everyone all agrees that there needs to be a major shift in the overall management of the University as its foundations are there to be a great place to study. It's a real shame. I would have gone somewhere else if I knew what I knew now. Don't believe me ask anyone who is going here currently (2021)

lovely campus, manor park has a great environment (20mins walk/10 mins bus), sports park is great for me, the career service is not bad (workshops and individual appointments available), a bit pricey stuffs in campus, 15mins walk to the town centre from campus, 24 hours library, not applicable to clubs and societies as I am not active during my time in the university

At least the internet in halls and private accommodation was good. Teaching was also ok. Surreylearn online service was awesome. HOWEVER, I had terrible experiences with renting, student union funding, societies, social culture, social spaces, administrative boards and the exam board. Ended up having to go somewhere else in third year because I couldn't stand it. I'm picking where to go now during the Corvid-19 pandemic...

campus is nice but accommodation services are too strict - no guests allowed over - on campus shop is too expensive and town is a 15 minute walk away and coming back is all uphill. bus service unreliable - what does the student union even do? also our chancellor spent £1.6k of the universities money moving his dog

I would not recommend going to this university especially to study law. There has been a huge negative change in the past 2 years. Student services are unhelpful and very unwilling to work with you. The parking is terrible and everything is very overpriced. With regards to teaching, your success would solely depend on the lecturer that you pick and not the subject as there is huge inconsistency between lecturers.

Student life:AMAZING! Best years of my life! Course: If you're planning to study Psychology here, please, please,please reconsider! It is absolutely terrible. The course is unbelievably tedious and pointless - you will acquire no skills whatsoever and it will be a grandiose waste of time. Lecturers are extremely unprepared and Year 2 is pretty much a carbon copy Of Year 1 so you learn nothing on top on the "nothing" you already learnt in first year. They claim to want you to practice your "critical thinking" but you are only allowed to do that as long as you argue as per their ridiculous and pointless views on real psychological issues.

It is a beautiful Uni but of course there are always faults. It is never as great a system as it appears to be advertised. But they seem to care greatly about student well-being.

They changed all the marking standards and everyone’s grades dropped from 1st to 2:1 etc. Many people have final year resits now which has been previously incredibly rare and have poor degrees. Surrey is known for good employability but most jobs require a 2:1. Surrey has poor teaching and poor organisation with no feedback being given. 2019

I'm very surprised to see the number of positive reviews for Surrey. I've honestly found the experience to be horrible from start to finish. The uni only cares about taking your money, accommodation and quality of education comes second. The uni has a massive problem with over-crowding as Surrey are taking on students faster than they can build accommodation. This has caused prices in the private sector to increase ridiculously and has caused a housing crisis in Guildford. Some courses have taken on so many students that the lecture theatres can't accommodate everyone - there have been reports of people having to sit on the floor for certain lectures - although the university "solved" this by booking out the local cinema to hold lectures in. Placement year is a rip off. Uni charge you 2k for being on placement and give you a load of pointless work to do as an excuse for the charge. I was happy with my placement but I wish I just took a sabbatical and did my placement during that.

My course (computer science) wasn't great - I'm limited on characters here so I must be brief. But some of the modules have been truly awful - as feedback is almost always ignored I can't see this changing anytime soon.
