Southampton is a great place to study. The city is peaceful and quiet with few distractions from study. The University is well equipped with comprehensive libraries, advanced data subscriptions and robust computing power. The modules are well organised and cover key knowledge on the subject. Learning materials (eg textbooks, journal articles) are readily available; professional databases and software packages are very useful for assignments. Also, the lecturers and staff are nice and helpful. The greatest opportunity that I took during my masters course here was a PhD scholarship from the Business School which has enabled me to pursue an academic career. Additionally, I attended study skills training (eg academic writing, critical thinking) and career events (eg career fairs, workshops, seminars) held by the University. After the excellent academic environment at University of Southampton helped me discover my interest in research and teaching, the timely PhD scholarship took me one large step towards becoming an academic. Now I am a PhD student and fortunate enough to have two knowledgeable supervisors. I also have the chance to work for the Business School and prepare for my future career.
