A research-led Russell Group university

We are one of the founding members of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities and are committed to providing you with an outstanding learning experience.

The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.

As an undergraduate student at Southampton, you can expect to be taught and supervised by researchers at the leading edge of their discipline. You'll learn about world-leading research as it takes place, giving you the kind of education that will put you among the most sought-after graduates.

As one of the leading research universities in the UK, we will focus on your talent and give you the chance to personalise your learning, providing you with opportunities to study subjects not directly linked to your degree. You will be challenged intellectually and encouraged to develop your ability to work and learn independently. Through group project work you will gain the transferable skills – such as communication, teamwork and project management – to put your subject knowledge into practice and help you achieve your career aspirations.

Depending on your chosen programme you could experience a wide range of innovative learning methods such as field trips, laboratory study, excavations, private and public sector placements, and group projects, all of which are supported by virtual learning environments. You could also be using our world-class facilities.
