Best professors and lecturers have now moved to mainland europe or australia and the... More

Visited yesterday for a open day. Very impressive set up from all staff and pupils, a really great effort. From the city centre car park we were directed to transfered by bus to the the Uni.

Beautiful area, nice buildings, easy access. We visited our children here and had lunch, which was very nice too. Excellent place for the students and for their friends and families.

Lacks atmosphere. Terrible service. My food was served cold. 1 out of 10. Would not recommend to family or friends, made me feel terrible about my self esteem

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.
