The best thing about my course was the people on it. I made a great group of friends at Surrey. University completely changed my outlook on life and improved my ability to cope with stressful situations. Once you leave university you really appreciate how magical it is to have the freedom to pursue learning every day. I’ll forever miss that. I had an incredible time at Surrey.
I now work as a civil engineer. My job offers great variety and allows me to use much of the knowledge I gained at university. I regularly refer to what I learned on my course. I’d highly recommend doing a placement year because you’ll gain such a valuable understanding of what your career could be.
