    Im thinking of applying there for psychology but unsure if they'll accept me as my as grades are currently ABC but i'm retaking to hopefully get AAB.
    I also didn't get the chance to see the uni so just wanted to know if it is a nice place or not for psychology and how accommodation and student life is.

    I've been accepted by the University of Surrey for Psychology in 2016! (I deferred a year)
    When I went on a campus tour I was really impressed by the psychology facilities - there are specialist areas of cognitive, development etc. The course is also designed to increase your employment prospects with a sandwich year, which is great for actual working experience in the field rather than just having the academics of it.
    For the accommodation I would say the on-campus environment is really great for socialising, and is also conveniently near everything you'd ever need. (Town shops about 10 mins walk away) The negatives of the accommodation I would say is if you're wanting Band D, which is ensuite, as it is very small for the price. The Band C houses actually seem like a better deal, as they are more spacious rooms and have a very communal feel.
    Surrey itself seems like a really nice town too, the clubs are a little lacking but with a few drinks I think you can turn anyplace around :')

    Hey! You may have already sent off your application, however I'm a First Year at Surrey on their 4 year Psychology course! The course itself is 5th on the country for Psychology (Guardian) and I'm really enjoying it. The lectures are enjoyable and the lecturers are extremely helpful. I would 100% recommend Surrey. A key point is that this year, Surrey have increased the typical offer to AAA however I would recommend still applying as I know a large handful of people who achieved AAB/ABB who were still accepted onto the course.

    All the best!
