Always study something you enjoy but consider carefully your job prospects at the end of it, and whether those jobs are ones you'd like to do. Don't take easy options, the harder you work the greater the rewards. Keep your options open, engineering is fantastic for that!

The University of Southampton's standing in the marine sector is equal to its excellent reputation throughout academia. Its course is rigorous and demanding but equips the individual with an unequalled understanding and comprehensive toolset for a successful career.
