    Hi guys.
    What your opinion about the University of Surrey?
    It's a good one?
    It's hard to get into?

    Thanks

    Definitely a good uni, I think it ranks 12th in the times league table. Not as if that’s important or anything. But it’s definitely one of those newer unis that’s had a big surge in popularity and has great job prospects (like Bath, Lancaster etc). The campus is also very nice (imo) and is in a great location, Guildford is perfect in the sense that it’s not too far from London but is far enough to have its own identity.

    I’m pretty biased though so get some other opinions too and see it for yourself before making your own conclusions

    Not extremely difficult to get into, but its reputable. I wouldnt say its amazing, put it above a former polytechnic by quite a bit, right on par with say Liverpool in the Russell group.

    In the UK all unis since 1992 are called universities, people are just aware they used to be polytechnics and generally arent as high ranked and have lower entry requirements.

    Its clear that in some countries, the best schools have the name polytechnic due to historical reasons, but you will notice these tend to be institutes of technology that really function as research universites.
