Solent University is really incredible. The University is very new and because of that it is not that high in the rankings, but I think that's going to change very quickly. The campus is new and technologically advanced, the staff is very helpful and the lecturers from my course are more than great!

For the two years I was able to spend at the university, it was fun. The library service was really good and the photography were great. But due to Covid, I wasn’t able to use any of the equipment in my final year. A bit frustrating but couldn’t be helped. Overall, I am satisfied with my choice of university.

Studied here for the first year this year and was incredibly disappointed. Teaching hours are very lacking, usually around or below 10 hours per week. Some timetabled classes are actually just "watch a video on youtube" but are still listed as class hours, when there is classes the majority of the time the tutor will just talk about pictures from google images for the entire session (very little practical teaching) and then most classes finishes 15+ minutes early. Teaching staff were nice enough, no problems but they didn't explain what we were actually supposed to be doing and it wasn't clear what was expected. Towards the end of every semester the teaching gets even worse, with all of the actual classes being replaced with 10 minute drop in sessions for the second half of the two semesters (teaching for the year finishes in March). No university community at all and societies are nonexistent so it's a pretty lonely place to study unless you're a people person, wouldn't recommend.

honestly my favourite part of the uni is the ground floor classrooms, that students can book in spare time, and we can just chill on the spinny chairs while studying, practicing a presentation, or even just using it to watch a movie on the projector.

Solent has been nothing but amazing for me. It has enabled me to achieve my true potential and achieve nothing but 1sts or 2:1s in all my assignments. I was tempted to go to a university in Bournemouth but I'm so glad I didn't as Solent is sooooo such better. Bournemouth was boring and would have been an extra year! The facilities are great and it's so close to West Quay. The staff are so talented and helpful and your peers are friendly and helpful. Would 11/10 recommend to anyone who is considering. Just go to an open day and see for yourself.

First year student so far so not much to say yet. Good staff with a few weird ones. Facilities for me are great with access to great equipment. Campus is decent and close to city center. Didn’t go to many societies but did attend D&D, was fun and friendly though couldn’t secure a group. Met some awesome people on my course so far. Course is engaging and enjoyable. Looking forward to second year.

Hair and make up. no hygiene enforcement. The workshops are substandard level and if your wanting to join the system of teaching the mostly incorrect theory of it, without knowing how to actually do it. This is the place for you. False promises of classes that didn't happen. The degree I recieved should say 'YouTube researcher '. Go to delamar they all seem to be happy and educated there or go to Neil Gortons 7 week course or Andrew Whiteoak for hair and wig making or do a hnd at a college would probably be more practical and beneficial . Bournemouth apparently have the same problems but don't have personal experience. And if you do join push your teachers to be better and tell them what you want assertively. Keep asking if there going to help you. Don't let them tell you to YouTube something all the time you deserve a basic professional practical group workshop to learn. Constructive complaining!!!

Through my degree my dyslexia support was poor. They kept moving everyone appointments without our permission as a political game. Was 0.2% off a 2:1 classification- my uncle died in the last month of hand its. It didn't count towards them. But my classmates death of her second cousin did, she didn't attend the funeral on hand in deadline for hers. You won't get support from supervisors, mine didn't even bother reading my dissertation before the deadline. Several of my classmates degrees got "rounded up" for 2:1 classification. Mine was the only one that wasn't. Thanks for the waste of time Solent!

Didn’t get the support I needed for my course and disabilities. When I asked for help and needed support, I was told I wasn’t able to park on campus to help me and I’d need a disability badge through the council which I am still going through processes for a year on. The lecturers I had weren’t any help, they read from a PowerPoint and weren’t allowed to help us with work. They got fed up with me being so poorly and not being able to get in, they didn’t want to help me work from home by sending me work and due to having to “buzz in” every time I got on campus, I didn’t have the attendance score I needed to pass, even if my grades were good. Due to not getting the support I needed from the government, I was also unable to live in Southampton, so I had to drive an hour there and an hour back each day and due to my disabilities and pain, I couldn’t physically do this every day without the help from my uni and I wasn’t given that support. My mental health wasn’t supported either.

I study Business Economics at Solent and will graduate in July with First Class Honours, having started the course without any A-levels or equivalent. Harjinder Virdee (course leader) is a fantastic lecturer and so are many of his colleagues, all of whom operate with an open door policy and are easy to contact. With regards to societies, I have been a member of several but finally settled with rugby. I cannot emphasise enough what a brilliant decision it is to join a society while at university. Weekly socials (minimum), annual tour, good training facilities, cheap gym membership, free use of physios, character building, etc... Ultimately, you will get as much out of university as you put in!

Southampton is not a town for the faint hearted - I would have felt safer walking the streets of London alone of a night time. The halls themselves are beyond appalling - not very spacious and terribly maintained, always an aroma of urine and plant of molly around. The surrounded students are noisy and inconsiderate. The distance from a lot of the halls to the main buildings are painfully long, and not worth your time. Do not go to Solent.

They have the cheapest facilities they can find, they lie about having some other facilities because they forget to tell you that they don't have the software for them and no one knows how to properly put them to good use.

The reputation Solent has is completely unjust. University ranking tables are unfairly judged and should be abolished. Solent is great for those who are interested in creative sectors. The campus itself is modern and yet fairly easy to get around. There are numerous societies and clubs to join which, like all universities, enable you to meet new people with similar interests as you! The Students Union is on hand for literally everything. Whether it be a small worry or something completely out of your control, they'll always be there to help you and give advice. The opportunities given by Solent are second to none, given that you're working with professionals on a standard daily basis (my course leader used to work for the BBC) and many courses offer you the chance to work with people in the relevant industries, give you the opportunity to go on numerous trips and even a chance to study abroad.

The Uni itself is great and very morden and industry focused how the only down side is the price of uni in general. I stayed in LFW and it was the worse experience of my life and want to move out the next day but was not able to. the room was okay however I could never sell music was playing until 4am and it was just scary at time that I would barricade my door.

Great uni! I've loved my experience so far, it has everything that you could possibly need, whilst being in the centre of town and super close to everything. Added to how friendly everyone is, it's a great uni!

The university is well maintained and easily accessible from the main transport links, it is well linked with many industries. Though the Student's Union has a nice bar and cafeteria, it is vastly underfunded and very poorly maintained, through large financial cuts over the past few years, leaving clubs and societies high and dry, struggling to maintain themselves.

I thought it was Uni Of when I arranged the open day, I didnt make it into my first choice and ended up at Solent and good god how I hate it. Terrible university, s*** learning resources and unenthusiastic lecturers. Kimber halls were expensive as hell and were s*** to live in also, thanks Solent, thank you so much.

Despite Southampton solents poor ratings in comparison to other universities. It's a quite good university as the staff are very helpful and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure student satisfaction. The local surroundings are very good easily as there is easy accesibility to shopping outlets and leisure centres nearby, and the nightlife is exceptionally good as there is a variety of places to go dotted around Southampton. The oppurtunites for career progression is very good as external businesses are always coming into the university for conferences. Staff are always encouraging students to partake in activities related to career progression and also external activities related to charital organisations. However Solent university is currently undergoing construction in some areas I.e. halls of residence and new building departments.
