We provide a stimulating learning environment and access to state-of-the-art resources to help you make the most of your time with us. Flexible spaces, Wi-Fi facilities and learning zones all contribute to our lively and contemporary study environment at Solent.
Our courses also benefit from purpose-built facilities which enable you to develop hands-on and work-related skills. From day one, you will have access to a virtual leaning environment (Solent Online Learning) designed to help you with everything from enrolment to successfully completing your coursework. We also use social media to keep you informed of up-to-the-minute information – like the change of venue for a lecture.
