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.

Studying at Southampton Solent University

Southampton Solent University has three campus sites and accommodates more than 19,000 students from more than 100 countries and offers over 150 courses. The university received 4/5 in the National Student Survey 2010 for its teaching. All programmes offered are relevant to the real world and are tailored to give students the skills and experience they need to go on after graduation into successful careers.

Southampton Solent University encourages students to make the most of their time by joining clubs, societies, learning new languages and working with the community through the Volunteer Opportunities Service. Current opportunities in this area include working on green initiatives, mentoring, representing the university and visiting the elderly. Many students have dreams to create their own business or want to develop ideas. The university has provided an Enterprise Adviser to help with this and modules to give further learning opportunities whilst earning credit points at the same time.

The Students Union runs a shop, two bars, a café, academic and welfare support services, a print shop and Sonar Media which includes Radio Sonar, Sonar TV, Sonar Magazine, and student cinema, Sonar Film. The Sudents' Union hosts many events throughout the year including larger balls and celebration events plus smaller regular weekly ones such as 'Nice Jugs' every Tuesday, The 'Big Fat Quiz of the Week' on Thursdays and 'Mega Mondays' where students can benefit from giant pints, giant cocktails and giant burgers.

The city of Southampton has a lot to offer students and is continually investing in its facilities. It is close to London, Bournemouth and Portsmouth, has its own theatre, museums, shopping centres, cinemas, lots of green space and is close to the sea, forest, the famous Rose Bowl and St Mary's Stadium.



Sports facilities at the university are numerous and include fitness centres, a sports centre, watersports centre, playing fields and other partners within the local area that together offer squash courts, a climbing wall, fitness classes, 3G pitches, tennis courts, netball courts, cricket and rugby pitches, weights rooms, a swimming pool with diving facilities and sailing. Team sports at the university have many successes behind them, such as 2011 Cup Winners for women's basketball, and 2011 South League Winners in Men’s Cricket.

Southampton Solent University has put huge investment into its facilities and can offer excellent technology in the fields of maritime, broadcasting, manufacturing and photography studies. There are many specially created learning spaces with free WiFi and several online learning services.

The teaching and organisation in this uni is beyond horrible, and accomplished in the bare minimum way, 3/5 of the lecturers I currently have are awful, making the subjects either seriously uninteresting, or a joke in itself. I wouldn't recommend coming here to any other student, save yourself from the stress of the disorganised lecturers, who make no effort in helping or getting to know their students.

Absolutely appalling. Would I waste my time here? No way. They don't care about the students just that you are a number with £££ after it and don't you forget it! People can be friendly but you are shafted from pillar to post. This uni couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery even given the starting pint.

Faultless apart from the poor SU - the Uni itself deserves all the credit it can get, and by the Uni, I mean lecturers, not the management as they're business men who have no clue

The campus is in a great location, just 5 minutes walk from the high street and West Quay. The Union is amazing, serving up some of the best food i've eaten. I've yet to dip my foot into the realm of societies, though.

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.

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**t learning resources and unenthusiastic lecturers. Kimber halls were expensive as hell and were s**t to live in also, thanks Solent, thank you so much.
