Contextualised Admissions & In2Surrey


In2Surrey is the University of Surrey’s contextualised admissions and transition scheme, coordinated by the Widening Participation and Outreach Team. It is designed to support eligible students in their preparation for studying at the University of Surrey.



As part of the University of Surrey's commitment to widening participation, we use contextualised admissions. This is where we use additional information, like socio-economic factors, to understand the context in which applicants have achieved their qualifications, enabling us to identify performance and potential.

Therefore, your students may be eligible for an alternative entry requirement if they are a UK domiciled student and meet the Surrey Scholars eligibility criteria. Click below to visit our website and to read more.
