A great place

I went here in this summer with a special summer school (phoneix) for study and discover the city. The university is a beautiful place for learning also all clean.

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.

Visited alma mater to view the various changes. Excellent halls accommodation added right in the heart of the city. You can also combine your travel on University bus with the Blue Star Service. Wifi on some buses and facilities to charge your devces

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
