First Look virtual event Saturday 15 May

This event takes place from 12:00 to 16:00 and is designed to help you imagine life as a student at Southampton. It’s open to anyone who’s interested in joining us in 2022 on an undergraduate course. You’ll be able to:

  • meet students and staff
  • hear about the transition from school/college to university
  • find out about student accommodation
  • gain an understanding of the application process
  • get a taste of what it's like to live in Southampton
  • explore student life, clubs and societies
  • understand how to manage your finances
  • discover how we'll support you
  • learn about internships and career opportunities

The event is a mix of live sessions and on-demand videos, talks and tours. The live sessions are split into 2 parts. The first 30 minutes are themed talks presented by a panel of staff and students. The last half of each session is a chance to ask your questions.

Your booking also gives you access to lots of on-demand content including:

  • subject talks presented by our academic team
  • campus and city tours
  • accommodation overview

Once you’ve booked your place we’ll send full details of what’s on and when. You’ll be able to access all the content on-demand after the event.

Equipment and software for virtual events

We use Microsoft Teams to run each live session but you don’t need a Teams account to take part. When you make your booking, you’ll receive an email with full details of the event schedule and links to each session. Learn more about how to join a Teams live event.

How to change your virtual event booking

If you register but don't attend the event you've booked you'll still be able to access all the content afterwards, including recordings of the live sessions. 

You can change your booking to a different day. Simply use the booking form to book your preferred date.

Because of COVID-19 we may need to change the dates, times, and overall circumstances of our undergraduate events. We will let you know if an event is cancelled.
