    Program Overview


    Located in the picturesque town of Guildford, the University of Surrey is about 35 minutes by train from London!  Students can pick from a variety of classes in the Arts and Sciences and Engineering.  Students are encouraged to go for the full academic year.  The campus is beautiful with a lake, gardens, and new facilities including the world class Surrey Sports Park.  Guildford is set in the Surrey countryside, an ideal base for exploring the rest of the UK. 

    This is one of UC’s International Exchange Programs.  These programs are great because the cost is the same as the University of Cincinnati.  In fact, tuition and fees are paid the same way they are when a student is on campus.  UC International can help students with many things, however many exchange programs are more independent experiences, and students are responsible for securing their own housing, visa, and airfare.  There will also be additional application materials that students will need to submit to the partner university through UC International Programs.  This is one of the most affordable ways to study abroad for a semester, but students should be sure an exchange program is the right fit before submitting an application.

    Passports and Visas

    A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department's passport page for more information.

    In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

    UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

    Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose to third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
