The library has several floors, each different to allow for different types of study; group, solo or computer assisted. The staff are extremely helpful and there is even an information desk during peak times. A particularly useful tool at the library is the library catalogue which allows you to view all your current loans and request reservations for books that aren't available at the time. In addition there are numerous computer labs dispersed around campus so computers are always available, in addition to printers/copiers etc. An aspect I thought was particularly good were the labs, it was a surprise to go from a small lab at college to the large labs seen at Surrey. Subsequently the equipment is far more advanced which is to be expected as research forms an area of high importance for the university. Consequently several of the lectures are partaking in current research and there are several opportunities to learn about such in lectures and practical labs. The sports park is a new facility and hence the equipment is modern and top of the range. One worry was that because of this and it's status as a training ground for many top athletes there would be little availability for us by students. But this wasn't the case at all and there has never been an instance where I have been unable to use the facilities; which include an Olympic sized swimming pool, climbing wall, squash courts, badminton courts, basketball courts, AstroTurf, gym and several workout rooms.×

In electronic engineering there is a huge range of topics you can study, and the further into your course you go, the more options are available to you. Everything from space robotics to media processing is an option, with certain basic modules in first year compulsory to lay the groundwork for future studies. You can be as varied or as specific as you like, which means there is always something to interest you on the course.×

Part-time work is difficult to come by, and there are a lot of additional costs such as textbooks that were never advertised in the course. I think managing money is a lot more difficult that everyone supposes at the beginning, especially as there is not vey much advice kicking about.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
