What our students think

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.

The University has definitely prepared me for my career. I almost feel as though they couldn’t have given me anything more, I got everything that I could have wanted from them, and it’s nice now to have the opportunity to go out and put that preparation into practice

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!

I particularly enjoyed the inclusion modules that you can do about social justice and inclusion in the classroom. I was also very lucky in that I could work with dyslexia specialists.

I wanted the kind of course that would give me the chance to be able to contribute to policy making in my country and fortunately I found what I wanted in Southampton

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.
