Hi, I'm Abi Tassie and I studied BSc Geography within Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

Studying Geography at University of Southampton has given me an incredible insight into all there is to see and experience in the world and the enthusiasm of the lecturers has definitely percolated into my excitement for my exploration in the future.

Q: Why did you choose to undertake your studies in Geography at the University of Southampton?

I chose to study at the University of Southampton for many reasons. The university had a good reputation for research and was also in the Russell group. I finally selected it as my first choice after visiting an open day and loving the feel of the campus - it felt like somewhere I would happily spend three years of my life. 

Q: What do you enjoy about studying Geography at Southampton?

I particularly enjoyed the opportunities to 'get out of the library' and partake in field trips alongside being taught by those in the forefront of their field of expertise. 

Q: What have you been able to achieve as a result of studying at the University of Southampton?

The list of achievements I have collected from studying at University of Southampton is endless. I have developed significantly as a person, becoming more confident and 'grown up' as my parents noted when I returned home for Christmas after my first semester! The University of Southampton made it possible for me to spend a semester in Singapore and for this I will be eternally grateful as it has enabled me to experience life as a Singaporean which I would never have been able to do without them. I have made a plethora of friends across not only the UK but also across the world which I hope I will continue to have after I graduated this summer. 

Q: What are your plans for the future?

After Singapore I am definitely interested in travelling and living around the world in the future. Studying Geography at University of Southampton has given me an incredible insight into all there is to see and experience in the world and the enthusiasm of the lecturers has definitely percolated into my excitement for my exploration in the future.
