Hi, I'm Amel Lamarah and I studied BA Politics, Spanish and Latin American Studies within Humanities at the University of Southampton.

I think what I enjoyed the most in Southampton University was the diverse student body. Whatever your background, you will find like-minded people in Southampton.

Amel is from Algeria and came to Southampton to study for an undergraduate degree in Politics, Spanish and Latin American Studies.

My experience

Studying at Southampton has been very fulfilling. My degree combines three of my interests, political science, the Spanish language and the study of Latin American culture. Although I had my share of work, I still felt like the rhythm in England was a lot more relaxed and the atmosphere more positive than in previous systems I had been in.

Experiences of the year aboard

My degree allowed me to go to Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, as an Erasmus student. I perfected my Spanish in a lovely, historical city only minutes away from Madrid and got to do it for free!

The Erasmus year gave me a chance to meet people from all over Europe and enjoy life in one of the most gorgeous countries in the world.

Experiences of university life

I think what I enjoyed the most in Southampton University was the diverse student body. I met people from all over the world in halls in my first year but also while taking part in activities organised by societies like the Middle Eastern Society and the Erasmus Society. Whatever your background, you will find like-minded people in Southampton.
