From the beautiful and friendly campus to the inspiring lectures, my experience of studying at Southampton has been great! The city and the campus are buzzing with life and constantly changing to make way for new and exciting things, and the student community is huge meaning there’s plenty to get involved in!

Southampton is a vibrant city with lots of great restaurants, bars, parks and events. The city feels safe and friendly, and it’s great being so close to the coast. Whether you like to go on nights out or prefer getting up early for a lovely breakfast, Southampton has something for everyone.

The best thing I have done outside of my course is my placement year with BMW. I got to work in their fast-paced events team for a year, taking on lots of responsibility and applying the theory studied in my degree.

Being at Southampton has allowed me to immerse myself in the world of Marketing, both theoretically and practically. The modern course has challenged my academic ability, and I love how relevant the course content is. Content is constantly reviewed and updated to reflect trends in the sector, ensuring we are knowledgeable and equipped to take on graduate roles.

I have also taken advantage of the links my course has with the Institute of Digital Marketing, attending a creative data academy and gaining an extra qualification in digital marketing.

Another of my highlights has been becoming part of the huge dance community. There are 16 societies offering a range of dance styles from around the world as well as the chance to audition to compete against other universities across the country. Dance has been a huge part of my university life, and I’m very lucky to be at a university with such a huge dance population.
