Students From Overseas
With more than 4,600 overseas students and over 145 nationalities on campus we are proud to be one of the most culturally diverse universities in the UK.
We recognise the importance of helping international students to settle in as quickly as possible. All new international (non-EU) students are invited to arrive a few days early in order to attend the International Orientation Programme. This is designed to help your son or daughter prepare for the start of their studies with us.
Our International Student Office can help overseas students to settle in to life at Surrey and can assist with immigration, visa issues, equivalence of entry qualifications, pre-departure information, employment regulations and international student welfare.
Throughout the year the International Student Office also publicises activities of interest to our international community and organises social events to help overseas students adjust to life in the UK and to meet others from across the globe.
