Southampton is brilliant for specific courses, such as mine (Oceanography). The NOCS campus is second-to-none and having access to these facilities benefit learning greatly. The support offered by the Student’s Union is wide ranging and in depth, with staff constantly looking for ways to improve further. The lecturers are clearly passionate about the courses they teach, are approachable and will always work with students to achieve the best outcome. For me, a large improvement could be made to the sports facilities. The Team Southampton Hall is dated, lighting is poor and storage is very limited, but Jubilee compensates this. Wide Lane could also see major improvements especially to the cricket pitches and nets, nails halfway down the track is dangerous, and dirt surround the wicket ruins balls quickly. The Astro there is the only good thing I can see.

Since arriving at uni for the first time from Northern Ireland, I instantly felt welcome and could easily orientate myself. The uni does a great job on making you feel welcome, has loads of societyies and is the right size to feel at home. The only bad parts about it were the lack of things to do outside of uni around Southampton (especially without a car) but this is improving. It would also be great to see the union facilities used much more and great accessibility.

Sometimes I feel that students are not supported enough. The university says that they would help them if they have problems with their studies, but in reality they do not do to much in supporting us. The university has great facilities, societies, career center, good module programme

Psychology BSc (Hons)

University rating (4)

The library is a great place to study, it’s very nice along with the rest of the campus (some buildings are outdated and could use a touch up but the newer ones are very nice). The campus feels very safe and has a lot of green space along with the Stags, a student bar which is very affordable and a great place to hang out. Some accommodation could be improved as it’s very old but they all have at least the basics, just aren’t all visually as nice (for example the new builds in Wessex are nice but the older blocks are very basic with a small kitchen so it’s very hard to hang out with flat mates and get to know them).

Education and Psychology BSc (Hons)

University rating (5)

The campus is beautiful, with plenty of places to study, eat and chill with friends. The halls are close by and spread across the city depending on what you prefer. It could be improved by freshers learning more about what the uni has to offer, a lot of people don’t realise half the stuff the Union/student services are able to do until their final year!

English BA (Hons)

University rating (4)

The University has amazing library facilities and ensure that no student is left out of accessing anything. Even if you’re a Humanities student, you get access to study spaces for engineering and sciences which often have the better, more comprehensive facilities. What could be improved is that the University needs to fix a lot of their technology and apps. The current Southampton app only works for a small amount of people and this makes engaging or find rooms particularly difficult.

Economics BSc (Hons)

University rating (5)

There are high quality learning resources and lecturers find engaging ways to teach students key concepts that will help us to secure highly regarded graduate jobs. There is a friendly atmosphere and students are frequently encouraged to ask questions in order to make the most of the learning experience. Learning is structured and there are clear objectives which makes revision easier to manage. It could be improved by more engagement between the University management team and the student body especially during Covid but reasonable adjustments were made to ensure students were not disadvantaged.
