The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.

    Couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. It strikes a great balance between academia and a really fun place to live and study for a few years! In the unlikely event of any issues arising there are numerous university services to help you solve them :)

    Honestly I couldn't choose anywhere over the university I am at. It's perfect for introverts and extroverts alike with courses that are flexible allowing you to study what you want from experts in the field.
