Voted as one of the most picturesque campuses in England, Surrey University has beautiful scenery and is a very nice environment in which to complete a degree in any chosen subject. In addition to the scenery it has also been rated as the best university for graduate prospects across all subjects.
The key factor that attracted me to Surrey for my undergraduate Computing degree was the fact that when I applied, I noticed the graduate prospects for the Computing department was higher than Oxford’s, according to some league tables!
Whilst I have found the course demanding at times, everything that we’ve been taught has been very useful and the ‘real life’ applications are often quite obvious. So far my time here has been great, I can’t wait to continue to apply what I’ve learned to some real situations by furthering my career.
