School Description

The University of Surrey was established on September 9, 1966 with the grant of its Royal Charter, but its roots go back to a late nineteenth-century. Surrey University was preceded by the Battersea Polytechnic Institute which was founded in 1891 and admitted its first students in 1894. Its aim then was to provide greater access to further and higher education for some of the poorer inhabitants of London. In 2016, Surrey will celebrate the 125th anniversary of its foundation.

Some of the notable alumni of Surrey University include, Jim Al-Khalili, theoretical physicist; Ameenah Gurib, President of Mauritius; Shukuru Kawambwa, Tanzanian Cabinet Minister; Liz McInnes, Labour Member of Parliament; Jeremy Kyle, host of the controversial The Jeremy Kyle Show and Sir Alexander Arnold Constantine Issigonis, designer of cars, widely noted for the groundbreaking and influential development of the Mini, launched by the British Motor Corporation in 1959.

            I had a diverse class with diverse experiences. We all interacted and learned from each other. One thing which I say often to my students and others is that UNIS teaches you how to learn. What I researched as my MBA thesis helped me in developing a Change Management Strategy for a huge Telecommunication Company a few years after I left Surrey. The Surrey experience is unique. Campus life, Life in Guildford, Interaction with others & nature itself. I am proud to that I have experienced University of Surrey.
