A very supportive environment, with a comforting and lush market town surrounding campus in lovely Surrey. It’s a such a beautiful campus, but if you fancy a bit of excitement, the centre of London's only 20 minutes away – the best of both worlds, really. And there's a really friendly atmosphere, especially with the Student Union who are incredibly helpful, very friendly and considerate. There’s loads going on throughout the year – for one, the food festival hits town just as Freshers gets going, so you can meet your new flatmates and find new and exotic hangover cures!

    I am liking everything about it so far. The location is beautiful. Students are provided with many useful programs during the first week to help you settle in the most. The uni is very organised and proactive in its services
