Career Support

Surrey focuses on providing a ‘complete education’ – combining personal development, academic learning and real world application into an unbeatable blend of skills, knowledge and professional experience.  Its Professional Training placement programme is one of the largest in the world, with over 2,300 partner organisations in the UK and overseas. The placement experience provides students opportunities to put their skills into practice and to experience a real working environment, contributing to employability after graduation.

New figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) reveal that the University of Surrey is ranked in second place for graduate employability, when compared with chartered universities in England. The figures reveal that 96.9% of Surrey’s graduates were in work (or further education) six months after they graduated. Our consistently high placing in the HESA figures is a result of our relentless focus on graduate employability and the success of our Professional Training placements.
