Students are a pleasure to be amongst. Education quality of course, is of Russell Group standard. The campus is a pleasure to be... More

I would not recommend this university. As a postgraduate student they seem to be out to make it as difficult as humanly possible to complete my course. So many promises before I arrived, but as soon as you've paid your fees that's it. They don't care anymore.

Just finished as a Fresher at Southampton Uni. Best year of my life. It has great clubs which are cheap and the Uni itself is unreal.

I'm an international student, planning to go to the UK to study Literature. We had a campus tour appointed. Being an international student, you'd think that they'd try to give a good impression, but it wasn't the case. First of all, we found that the signs referring to the secretary of the main campus were confusing. It took us almost... More

Serving mostly cold prepacked snacks and hot and cold drinks. Parking is very... More

We think this is a really bad university. It is full of chavs and just un polite people. If you want to go to any university Portsmouth is much better.
