For my MSc I only applied to Southampton and Portsmouth. I withdrew my Portsmouth application when I got the offer from Soton. Basically it's close to Winchester, where I did my first degree, and it's a good uni and I like the city.

Out of sheer curiosity, a question to the So'ton students. Where else did you apply to, and were you accepted etc?

And what made you choose So'ton?

Thanks.

Cardiff,Sheffield,Sussex and Manchester. Had offers from all of them - but Cardiff's offer was for subjects I'm not doing!! Fairly hard choice between Manchester and Southampton but Southampton won in the end.

UCL, Bristol, Sheffield and Bath; got offers from all.

I chose Soton because it just seemed like such a friendly environment and is top 5 for my course
I liked UCL, but I think it's too close to home for me.

I applied to York, Exeter, Nottingham and Warwick...
Warwick was my favourite one, but I got a rejection from it, so I guess Soton will be my firm...

actually i'm doing maths with actuarial studies, but you get the same number of exemptions as someone doing actuarial science.I wanted to do more than just act science which is why i chose soton, although i did get accepted by city and lse.

Bangor & Plymouth for Ocean Sciences
UEA for Meteorology and Oceanography
Liverpool for Chemistry with Oceanography
Portsmouth for Marine Environmental Science <--- a place filler as my stupid 6th form made us apply to 6

I chose Southampton because it was the best place to study oceanography in Europe and the NOC is great ^_^ Even if you do get lost every time you go there...

I also applied to Cardiff, Bristol, Kent, Aberystwyth and Leicester, all to do Astrophysics, got offers from all but chose Southampton as firm and Aber as insurance.

Southampton just had the complete package - great course, great department, great campus, great halls, great city. Simple
