What our students think

The initiatives that Southampton undertakes to help students find internships and placements in my opinion give proof of a genuine interest displayed by the University in the professional lives of its students.

My year in employment gave me time to network, explore ventures, and travel; giving me clearer insight and comprehensible vision of my future.

The structure of the course is what makes it special. Students can choose from a range of different modules, therefore creating the skill package they believe is the most suitable for their future careers.

I used the Bloomberg computer suite for my dissertation when collating share price data for companies – it was very useful and made the whole process a lot easier.

I did a 10 week internship at an investment bank working within the compliance team. It was really interesting working with real data from the outside world and using my analytical skills.

I’ve had an internship at Allianz Insurance within their finance team. I was able to use the economics knowledge that I have gained in my degree such as accounting and quantitative skills.

Signing off, I wish to stress that my Doctoral studies and achievements are an amalgam of inspiration, challenge, encouragement from fantastic academic staff and colleagues and a great working environment. For students thinking of undertaking postgraduate and/or Doctoral studies in Economics at the University of Southampton, I would simply say “go for it, you will love it!

What's most important is that the Division ranks very highly in the UK. It is widely recognised for the high quality of both its research and teaching.

I was part of the university taekwondo club for my whole three years and in that time it developed to become like a new family. Without realising it societies train you to manage your time and develop a good work-life balance.

I have managed to secure a five year graduate training contract with PwC to qualify as a Chartered Accountant and Management Consultant. Southampton’s reputation and strong links with employers certainly helped me to secure this in the extremely competitive graduate job market.
