    I used to study naval architecture (or ship science as the uni refers to it) at Southampton up until last year and my flatmate is also a second year on the same course so I like to think I could be of some help! Student life is really what you make of it, if you shut yourself away then you'll have a sorry old time but if you get out there, make plenty of friends, join a team/society or two and get stuck in with all your course mates it'll be one of the best times of your life

    The course itself is pretty good, the majority of the lecturers and tutors are usually pretty switched on and there are plenty of interesting and enjoyable things to get out of it. Don't underestimate the amount of work right from the beginning, even in first year it's not exactly laid back like many other courses and the workload only goes up but don't let that put you off! Regarding employability, because there are so few universities offering equivalent accredited degrees in the UK if you come out with a good end result you're pretty much guaranteed at least one job offer, normally with a decent starting salary as well. A lot of people end up with more than one offer and if you start networking when doing projects and making use of guest lecturers to build contacts you can really go into almost any area of the naval architecture world if you put your mind to it!

    If you want to know anything else, just give us a shout
