How do you like Surrey? I think it's my first choice 😄 any tips for interviews? Also, do many people commute to surrey? I live in London and want to start by trying to commute (would take an hour).

Overall it’s great. It is a really good environment. Be aware though there is basically no nutrition in the first year, just biosciences and food science.

For interviews, just make sure you understand current topics in Dietetics. They will ask difficult scenarios of what might happen as a dietitian and you would say what you do. They will also informally assess you current knowledge of nutrition (very basic, don’t worry)

Some people do commute but it makes their social life a nightmare and they end up missing lots of lectures as they aren’t prepared to do a 2 hour + round trip for a 50 minute lecture that’s barely in English and recorded on Panopto anyway (our lecture capture system - a lifesaver and brilliant software)

awesome! Is the science level a large step up from A Level? Chemistry was never my favourite subject...… Do they mind if you miss lectures if they're on lecture capture anyway?

Hey! I am planning on applying for Nutrition and Dietetics as well at Kings and Surrey. I am actually apart of the American System so I don't know if my information will be helpful? I haven't applied yet because I am waiting on my SAT Subject test scores. I might have misinterpreted what you wrote but I was wondering how are you applying for the Nutrition and Dietetics course and Nutrition ( and medical sciences) course. I thought you could only apply for one? Thanks so much

Hi I’ve got an offer for Surrey but have heard lots of bad reviews on how expensive it is to live there and that Surrey is a very boring place, just wandering if you could give your honest opinion?x

It is pricier than most places, but this is due to it being in the commuter county of Surrey. The University makes a loss on accommodation, offering large budget rooms from £76//week (2018 prices) which is cheaper than the vast majority of universities, even in much lower cost areas. I don't find it boring at all, but it is a small town, so if you ant the London life then Surrey probably won't offer that, but there are lots of good clubs and activities, as well as parks and hills to explore.

The biology is, but you’re supported. The chemistry so far is more or less A-level standard, but this may change as I progress through the programme.

I've applied for University of Chester and University of Ulster. I'm on a gap year with my A level grades already. I got an unconditional for Chester however I don't know about Ulster yet. Chester seems like a lovely city but I'd rather stay in Northern Ireland!
