If you answer YES to any of these questions, beginning your Science undergraduate studies with Science at Surrey is for you:

  1. Interested in professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, etc.?
  2. Unsure of what you want to take, but know you want Science?  
  3. Know the specific subject you want to focus on? 

Science at Surrey offers the benefits of small classes which facilitate the development of friendships and support groups, and strong rapport between students and instructors.

Lecture, laboratory, and tutorial sections for first-year biology, chemistry, earth science, kinesiology, and physics courses are held at the Surrey campus in our teaching laboratories.  Second year Organic Chemistry courses are also taught.
