For Alumni and Supporters

Student Support

We are determined that gifted students should be able to come to Surrey no matter what their personal or financial circumstances. Changes to student financial support and variable fees make scholarships and hardship support vital in higher education.

Your gift to the Annual Fund will help us provide:

  • Hardship grants to assist students experiencing severe financial difficulties
  • Scholarships and bursaries to enable exceptionally talented students to realise their potential
  • Service, guidance and support for international students

"The generosity of Annual Fund donors has meant that a substantial number of UK and overseas students have been able to continue with their studies, overcoming difficulties that might otherwise have forced them to cease their education. Donors are not only alleviating students' financial problems, but are also enabling them to progress their studies with less anxiety and stress." Craig Lowe, Director of Student Support
