    Hi,
    As everyone may know, the university of southampton is a uni with an extremely good reputation. However, I dont feel it is given enough credit as is should be. It is one of the top research uni in the UK, it performs very well on all of its courses (very few unis do this) and so I feel it is in the same league with Bristol, York, Notts, Exeter, Warwick, etc...

    What are your views on this?

    I'll be honest and say I applied here for sentimental reasons rather than academic (I was however rejected by Bristol, Bath and Imperial), and it's only since I've been here that I've discovered just how good the University is.

    It would be easy to say I'm biased, but the Uni has excellent overall subject coverage whilst still specialising in certain areas - I'm aware that it is among the best Universities in the world for specifics such as Jewish History and Group Theory (Mathematics), as well as being an incredibly reputable Uni for Engineering courses.

    To be honest, I've always put Soton in the same league as Bristol, York, Bath, Exeter, Notts etc.

    It is a really good university but I can see why some people haven't heard of it/ don't know how good it really is because to me, it comes across as a sciency university than a humanities/artsy one.

    I love it anyway.
