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.

I have really enjoyed my time settling into the university, and they're providing me with a wide range of opportunities for preparing me for when I pass and get into work. My only current issue is all the clubs I want to join occur on the same night.!!
