What our students think

My time in Kenya has been a life changing experience. I value the things I have in my world a lot more now than I did before.

I had the fantastic opportunity of going to Kenya to teach in a deprived area. This experience fundamentally changed me as a person in ways I could never have imagined.

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.

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.

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.
