The field trips have been amazing. We went to Tenerife in second year and I’ve got memories from that trip that I don’t think I’ll be able to top; it was brilliant.

The lecturers are always incredibly engaging and it is clear they are truly passionate about their subjects. This makes a big difference to the lecture experience.

University for me was also about gaining independence and I have been able to achieve this, particularly at Southampton, by having the opportunity to study abroad.

I was able to choose a variety of really interesting modules - from the political landscape of the Middle East, to the science of shopping.

The Geography department and combined Oceanography department were very strong, particularly in terms of research, which I thought would give me a fantastic platform for my academia alongside the opportunity to become involved in extracurricular activities.

Throughout my BSc course the University staff was generous with its support as were my fellow students, despite the fact that I was nearly three times their age.

I enjoyed the choice of modules; you could do anything from climate change, to development and inequality in cities - you really get to shape the degree the way you want to.

The modules looked (and were) great, the staff were approachable, and the opportunities that arose from the course all attracted me, but it was the University (and its campus) as a whole that made me fall in love with Southampton

Human Geography is very broad, so I have learnt about economic geography, cultural geography, tourism and many other areas. I find that you gain a broad general knowledge about the world, which I think every human being needs.

My joint honours degree incorporated and allowed me to do 50 per cent of my modules at the National Oceanography Centre, giving me experience in the geological field.

Journalism is about getting to the bottom of the facts, fast, and then communicating them effectively – skills my Geography degree played a huge part in honing.
