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.

    Excellent. But I know other students who weren't as happy as me. Visit as many universities as you can - imagine living in that town or city for three or more years. Picture yourself traveling to and from uni, doing your food shopping, slepping round in the rain with asda bags. Then decide which place feels right to you.
