Inventive and forward-thinking, our heritage shows a recurring theme of going our own way, doing things differently and achieving notable results. Giving students a competitive edge for their future. Thats what we do, and its what we have been doing since our very first students passed through our doors in 1894. The University was established with an aim to educate men and women who had a thirst for knowledge and a hunger to succeed. Whilst times have changed, our belief in the power of education and innovation remains the same.

The University of Surrey was established on 9 September 1966 with the grant of its Royal Charter but its roots go back to a late 19th century concern to provide greater access to further and higher education for the 'poorer inhabitants' of London.The forerunner of the University, the Battersea Polytechnic Institute (founded 1891, first students admitted 1894) began concentrating on science and technology from about 1920 and taught day and evening students for degrees of the University of London. Its academic reputation steadily grew to the point in 1956 where it was one of the first colleges to be designated a college of advanced technology. It was renamed Battersea College of Technology in 1957.
