About this university

International students

Students travel from 120 different countries to study at the University of Surrey, making it one of the most culturally diverse education facilities in the UK. For these international students, the International Office is the base of information and assistance for their time in the UK and can help with a number of subjects and problems. This involved practical information about immigration and visas as well as programs to help non-English speaking students master the language. They can also help students organise their courses and any foundation year qualifications needed. Student life is organised through the Students’ Union that consists of departments representing students on academic and welfare issues as well as looking after sports clubs and societies. The union also organises a number of Balls during the year varying in formal dress and special occasions as well as special events during term time. There is even a Union nightclub called Rubix where up to 1600 students can meet up at one time and hosts a range of different guest acts and themed nights. There are over 100 clubs organised through the Students’ Union with everything from sports to TV and radio as well as working with a charity or being a volunteer. They can also assist students looking for something new to broaden their horizons and develop new skills.
