Meet our students

The lecturers are very approachable and convey their passion about their subjects, which makes the lectures and seminars even more gratifying.

The Year Abroad gave me invaluable work experience… and my degree was also flexible enough to let me undertake important part-time work and freelance opportunities.

The opportunities I have taken up whilst at university have definitely helped me decide on what path to follow – had I not studied abroad, and made the most of societies such as AIESEC, I doubt I would have come to be so interested in development, and so well placed to pursue a career in this field.

The course offered a variety of modules and I was also impressed by the quality of the student accommodation and what Southampton had to offer as a city.

The great thing about Southampton is that there are so many academic and non-academic opportunities.

My biggest achievement has been founding the University of Southampton Civil Engineering Society (CivSoc). We negotiated sponsorship with a local engineering company, arranged visits to construction sites and ran social events.

The freedom within Film to take the concepts from the modules and apply them to any film of your choosing was always appealing. I also enjoyed the communal aspect; we were a relatively small course for numbers, which I liked.

The variety of modules that are available is brilliant. I have gained skills and knowledge in so many areas of the literary cannon. From translating Old English texts to discussing fashion and riots in British Culture in the 1980s, there is always something new to learn.

One of my big highlights would be representing the University at Formula Student UK 2013… watching a racing car I'd helped to build drive for the first time was brilliant, made only better by sharing it with many friends I'd made throughout the year by being in the team.

Academically, I have been able to broaden my opportunities much further than I ever could have anticipated as I have been selected by the University to stay on and undertake postgraduate study.

I enjoyed attending the Web Science conference at the Royal Society in London. Even before I signed up with Southampton, they were offering opportunities other institutions I considered were not.

I have had the opportunity to engage in volunteer work and gain employment through NHS Professionals, which allowed me to work as an Occupational Therapist Assistant throughout my course.

I really enjoyed being able to pursue almost any aspect of Archaeology I chose.

I’ve learnt field techniques and background knowledge on wildlife conservation… It’s given me the knowledge I need to get a career in the field I want.

There is no doubt that placement is the highlight of the midwifery course. The lectures at this university are excellent but the women and midwives you meet along the way are gold standard. The impact you make on women’s lives can be incredible.

I enjoyed the fact that the course can be more specific and tailored towards the later years of the degree programme, helping to create a unique degree specific to individual interests and aspirations.
