What Our Students Think

Southampton’s BM6 programme offered me the independence I wanted alongside the support I needed to take full advantage of the wide range of educational and social opportunities available here.

Now I have completed the programme I feel educated, free and independent.

The teaching and facilities are great. Throughout my 4 years here I've seen the curriculum change due to student feedback and also new facilities being developed.

Being part of Southampton University Air Squadron, one of only 15 across the country, must be one of the biggest highlights to studying Medicine here. It has given me the opportunity to travel abroad to Austria and build vital social skills.

There were many reasons why I choose Southampton; I wanted to stay down south, I really liked the integrated nature of the course and I heard that it is really good for medicine.

I feel very proud to have studied at Southampton – it has given me the skill base and knowledge to be a junior doctor and further grow and develop as a person and professional from this point onwards

From the first year we had contact with patients, which helped develop our communication and patient skills right from the start.

I have not only enjoyed the content of the course, but many of the students and staff that I have met along the way have been friendly, kind and supportive.

Southampton has pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me grow in confidence so I can take on the opportunities and challenges of a long term career in medicine.

Studying in Southampton has helped me become very open minded and self-independent. I am so glad that I had the chance to have this great educational experience.

The Faculty of Medicine has offered me a lot of support over the past 3 years and I feel that I will be fully supported if I have any problems in the future. Learning here is a pleasure and I have no doubt that any medic at the University of Southampton will make a wonderful doctor.

Everybody here is very friendly, the campus is great, the Student Union put on fantastic events regularly and, of course, Southampton General Hospital is among the finest tertiary hospitals in the country. Choose Southampton - it is a choice you will not regret!

Medicine at Southampton is interactive, varied and fun! We have a wide range of teaching styles, from practical tasks in the anatomy lab to small group tutorials and whole-year lectures. There are so many ways to learn and interact with lecturers and peers and there’s a teaching-style for everyone and no day is ever the same.

Southampton is one of the best places to study Medicine in the UK and its reputation is well-deserved, I love the course and completely understand why it is so oversubscribed! One of the best things is that you are very much free to develop your own interests, in whatever they may be and the range of opportunities within the clinical environments is fantastic.

During Year 3, I was introduced to Clinical Genetics, which opened my eyes to a completely new field of medicine
