If there's one thing our 160 year history has taught us, it's that employers are expecting more than ever from modern graduates. Our job is to ensure you leave your course ready to exceed those expectations - equipping you with the hands-on skills and workplace confidence you'll need to succeed.
Employability sits at the heart of everything we do. Our curriculums, created in collaboration with industry employers, guarantee that the skills and knowledge you gain have genuine market value. Our teaching teams extend this value, injecting their first-hand experience into every aspect of your degree.
Everyone learns differently. If at any point during your studies you feel you may benefit from extra support, you'll be able to access it. This isn't limited to academic support either. Whether you want help setting up your own business, are worried about your finances or simply want help with looking for part-time work, our support services will be there for you.
Our five student residences are great places to work, relax and meet new friends. All are located in Southampton city centre and are within a fifteen minute walk of the main campus. If you’d rather rent a place of your own, we can help you to find a suitable private landlord.

Outside of the classroom you’ll be joining the 30,000 students who already call Southampton home. Our campus (and six halls of residence) can all be found in the heart of the city, so you'll never be far from the things that make this one of the UK’s most vibrant student communities.
