Established in 2004, the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) at the University of Surrey sponsors workshops and Fellowships at the ‘cutting edge’ of science, engineering, social science and the humanities.

Through this scheme the Institute fosters interdisciplinary collaborations and encourages a flow of international scholars to visit, enjoy their stay at Surrey and leave behind excellent ideas and innovations. Over the years our events and Fellowship visits  have resulted in many research grants, new collaborations, journal articles and books, as well as much good will from all over the world. We would like to thank the University of Surrey for its ongoing support.

The Institute of Advanced Studies is a member of the UK Consortium of Institutes of Advanced Studies and the international Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes.

Despite this, we’re proud to report that there have been some notable achievements in 2020. Read more in our Annual Review.
