“If you want to be challenged to work hard, encouraged to do what you want to do, and celebrated for what you have achieved, Southampton is where you want to be. I have changed so much as a person since being here, and my confidence levels have soared thanks to the people I am surrounded by, both lecturers and classmates alike.”
