Fantastic, amazing, brilliant! I can't think of anymore adjectives! I just absolutely love it here so much. I think if you can get over the aesthetics of the student accomdation (which isn't really the most important thing anyway!) then I can't recommend Southampton enough! It's just amazing, the people are so lovely and more importantly, I couldn't be any happier with my course. Come to Southampton!!
