The most “luxurious” school I ever set my foot in. Facilities-wise I cannot have any complaints, however, the building is very expansive which I study in the newer parts of, so the look and facilities may greatly differ.

While the university was good, it lacked more practical application to my course (mechanical engineering) there was a lot of turbulence due to a teacher quitting in the middle of the studying year and of course covid has put everyone on their limits. But during covid the university did not adapt well their dynamic application to the given setting was not good. In the course too much theory and not actual practice.

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.

A lot of it is because of covid. The beurocracy and politics within the university really ruins the experience - especially with well loved teachers getting made redundant, contact time being cut etc

I’ve not been able to attend the uni that much due to corona but from what I have encountered, I have enjoyed it a lot.

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!!!

This university is THE BEST !!!!!! The lecturers pay a lot of attention to you and make sure you understand everything. They are always ready to help! The lectures are educational but not boring! All lecturers try to make the lectures exciting! Haven't met a single lecturer that wasn't friendly! This is the uni I wanted to get into and I haven't had one regret !!!!! P.S. Criminology course rules!!!!!

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!

Very basic and not a lot of communication between departments. Clubs and student union are not popular at all and badly need marketing.
