What our students think

I enjoyed the variety of topics that were covered, and the flexibility of my course meant I could always choose modules outside of my course subject area, enabling me to broaden my knowledge and hence improve academically. I had the opportunity to be a course representative, working closely with my course mates and lecturers at every point in my degree.

I chose Southampton University because it was recommended to me as outstanding by both colleagues and SEN advisors. I am currently Head of the Resourced Provision for SpLD, at The Wavell School in Farnborough. I work closely with the SENCO ensuring the academic and emotional well-being of the students both in the Resourced Provision and in the wider school.

I became a student again after 12 years. At the beginning I was quite apprehensive about study. The structure of the course forced me to study hard but I enjoyed the study very much; which I never had in all my past 35 years. I feel like studying there for a few years more!

As a course representative, I have seen how remarkably well, the staff deal with issues students are having. Every staff member is approachable and quick to respond to emails. They really do work hard to help students in their studies.

One of the best highlights in my career so far has been getting a degree in the field of Education Management and Leadership. It has enabled me to become a professional Education Counsellor, where I can help students to understand the value of education.

My time at Southampton has definitely helped to me grow as a person and I have increased my knowledge of my subjects. I am more independent and confident, have had some amazing experiences, made friends for life and have wonderful memories.

It has completely changed my outlook towards professional development and how learning can be integrated into the work place.

I have been put in great schools for my placement and this has really set me up for my future career as a primary teacher. I was also lucky enough to travel to Kenya and teach over there. This was an incredible experience that I will remember for the rest of my life!

My tutor was absolutely fantastic and had excellent up-to-date knowledge and experience. My lectures were well planned and perfectly matched to my needs as a specialist teacher.

The team at the education school were fantastic. They were always supportive and there to help, both with qualifying as a teacher and finding a permanent job at the end of my studies. They made every effort to tailor the placement to your needs and aspirations, whilst providing a range of places to train.
