Southampton is one of the few universities to offer an accredited psychology degree and education as a joint honours. This combination of subjects worked perfectly for me.

Studying at the University of Southampton has given me the opportunity to learn about what I love while developing my confidence in all that I do. I value the academic skills I’ve gained and hope to apply them to further studies after my degree, something I would have never thought would interest me before starting here!

I have a fantastic tutor who has supported me throughout my degree. I had the opportunity to take part in a variety of research projects and I’m now a named author on a published research paper!

A major strength is that all the lecturers are at the top of their field of research - it's a really contemporary course and we're learning about things which our lecturers have researched themselves.

What I am most proud of so far is that I feel I have come out of university so much more confident in myself, my knowledge and my abilities.

The lecturers are not only passionate but at the top of their field. My undergraduate degree has enabled me to focus my career aspirations into primary education. I can confidently say that I am leaving with a high level of independence, both academically and socially.

I initially applied to the University of Southampton due to it being a member of the prestigious Russell Group universities. Adding to its appeal was how green the city of Southampton is, as well as this being very student centered.

I didn't start my undergraduate degree thinking that I would go on to do a PhD. The variety of modules I had the opportunity to complete during my degree inspired me to work towards a career in research or academia.

My next Volunteer Research Assistant placement is working with the Autism Diagnostic Research Centre. My main area of interest is autism so this was a perfect placement for me.
