It’s been a rollercoaster of a ride, but absolutely fantastic. One of the highlights has been the privilege to study cadavers which helped me identify the different arteries and muscles in the body.

The University of Southampton was at the top of my choices: not only for its Russell Group status, but also for its great facilities, course structure and small cohort, which really appealed to me.

I am passionate about mental health recovery and keen to learn about how the US’s use of the term ‘well-being’ could be introduced in the UK to reduce stigma.

We have had a very broad range of lectures which has made for a very interesting first year. I have started to feel like I am growing into a nurse which is very exciting as I have been dreaming of this for years.

"I chose Southampton because they seemed to offer more opportunities to assist our learning such as labs in first year and charity projects throughout the three years to engage with service users outside a placement setting"

The best experience on the course was getting to travel to Sweden and collaborate with the students of Lund University. Whilst there we got to listen to some amazing speakers from the world of OT, who offered new and fresh perspectives on where the profession of is heading.

I have undertaken a one-week observation placement in a neuro-centre and a six-week musculoskeletal out-patients placement. Not only have I learnt so much but I have also got to know qualified physiotherapists who are happy to answer questions and pass on valuable extra skills

The university is the only Russell-group university for the course of Podiatry, and therefore I only ever wanted to come here! From the open day, I fell in love with the campus and the whole life around the city.

It is the opportunities Southampton offers that have really made the difference. Providing sports massage at the Great South Run and for the New Zealand Defence Forces Rugby team during their World Cup tour, are definite highlights.

Southampton being a Russell Group University was certainly something that I paid attention to, but it was the welcome from staff and students and ‘feeling’ I got when I attended the Open Days that sold it to me

In my first year, I was attached to an acquired brain injury (ABI) unit. My supervisor and OT team made sure that I was given every opportunity to learn how OT impacts recovery and community rehabilitation.

The University of Southampton is ranked as one of the top universities for studying nursing, therefore it easily grabbed my attention. The more I looked into the university the more I realized what incredible support, teaching and opportunities Southampton offers student nurses, which is why I chose to come to Southampton.
