Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2017

"The campuses are all in one place and together so they're easy to get around. There's nice greenery on the main campus and the separate campus for humanities is a ten-minute walk away. There's constant investment into more space for university students and there's a growing number of societies and social life that comes with this."
"There are great opportunities for the top final-year students such as CERN placements."
"The excellent quality of course content, academic support, resource availability and facilities among other things."
"The events the union put on are very varied so there is something for everyone including karaoke, comedy nights and wine tastings. The societies are really good."
"I really like the design of the main Highfield campus. There are plenty of green spaces to relax in nearby and it blends in well with the local environment. The students' union facilities are also very modern and there is a large variety of things to do but, most importantly, I think the chemistry department is really supportive and all of the staff are very helpful and intelligent."
"We have great facilities, an excellent campus, a good location, a good atmosphere and a good careers department."
"The location and people are great and the world-leading equipment we have access to is justified by the amount of large companies such as Aston Martin that use our resources. The teaching is pretty good as well."
"There's good support for mental health and wellbeing and good opportunities to work for the union. There are many opportunities to get involved with the uni such as ambassador and halls committee etc."
"The societies available make it easy to get involved in a range of new hobbies and meet people. The town is very suited to student life, has everything you need in terms of shopping and isn't very big so it's easy to get around and very accessible."
"I have a great department and staff as well as a good range of modules on offer. The student community, students' union, library and study facilities are all great."

2016

"There seems to be such a wide range of opportunities offered that I struggle to keep up with all of them. All of them are well organised and give great opportunities to grow and build your CV."
"Great students' union. Cheap and affordable town. A good Russell Group university with a good reputation."
"The lecturers are extremely enthusiastic about their subjects. It's a Russell Group uni so has connections and there are law firms that come in to give talks."
"Beautiful clean campus and great teaching staff. It's in a great location on the south coast."
"The lecturers and the location. The campus is nice and part of the Russell Group so has prestige. It's a supportive environment and the course is interesting."
"Very good on-site facilities and the lecturers are generally good. There's lots of support and opportunities for internships etc."
"Brilliant course with access to research vessels and great laboratories. Hands-on learning where we gain skills that are directly applicable to potential jobs."
"The facilities for Ocean and Earth Science are unrivalled. The teaching staff are brilliant, along with the NOC itself and all of the facilities available."
"The large variety of sports/clubs offered. Proximity to New Forest and beaches."
"The location and unilink buses ensure that it's easy to get everywhere you want to be in Southampton. There are open green spaces, like Southampton common. Halls are great and the course is good. Lovely campus includes great sports facilities. There are supermarkets etc nearby."
