With all the available reputable universities in UK, the University of Southampton was the perfect fit for everything I was searching for. The University of Southampton gave me much more than a Masters degree printed on a piece of paper but rather a well rounded experience of what it takes to become a better version of myself.

Southampton, the best place to live in UK. A one year stay at Southampton does not feel like I was in alien land but it was home away from home. Do not think about a second choice when you get an opportunity to study at University of Southampton.

My first impression was simply “amazed”! The efforts made to make studying here as easy as possible are felt at each and every step! The friendly staff made everything easier. I would definitely recommend the University of Southampton to Egyptian students. The support they will have here is more than enough. They will be welcomed and never feel strangers.

I would highly recommend the University of Southampton, Highfield and Malaysia campus, to ambitious Egyptian students who are looking to kick-start their career, not only due to the university’s reputation but also due to wide international community at the university and the friendly staff who will offer you help both on the academic and personal sides of your journey.
