Surrey Ranked 1st for Welcome (out of 45 institutions Globally) in Shape Your Surrey

We’re pleased to report that in 2016 Surrey was ranked number 1 for overall welcome experience in the i-graduate student barometer, achieving 1st out of 45 institutions globally. (Results released Feb 17) Surrey achieved 92.1% student satisfaction.

Support services, especially wardens and mentors in residences, work hard to ensure students receive a warm welcome and transition into University life. This is complemented by professional service teams who deal with registration, administration, financial support and faculty teams who work hard to ensure students feel supported by academic colleagues and personal tutors.

The overall welcome planning is lead by the Welcome Week Steering Group with sub groups covering key areas below:

  • Welcome Steering Group (Craig Lowe)
  • Move in Weekend Sub-Group (Tracy Smith)
  • Central Events Sub-Group(Carol Clutton)
  • Registration Sub-Group (Katie Salt)
  • Digital Journey Sub-Group (Wendy Ross)

Thank you to everyone involved in creating this great result!
