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

I was sold the uni as the new building and how amazing it was, not once have I been in it for one lesson and I’ve been at the uni 2 years. I’m always in the older building across the park, many people are the same and are very annoyed too.

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.

Where to begin the course I was on was so unsatisfactory and the course leaders were a joke, after running around in circles for three years we managed to get somewhere only after going to the OIA. I have advised multiple people about not going to solent merely because of it.

The modules and course content is very varied and gives you a great expanse of knowledge. It has helped me develop as a person in many ways.

The teaching and facilities are excellent but everything to do with the students union could be improved a lot from the societies to the actual SU building.

Since I first started studying at Solent (2 years ago) I've had a great experience. The facilities for photography and film are exceptional and all the staff is incredibly kind.

The campus was well presented and easy to navigate. However I didn't have a good experience with the staff as they seemed disinterested in me when I started struggling with personal issues. I ended up leaving in my first term of my first year. The university is good if you want to focus on sports... Its an extremely sports orientated University. It seems like most funding goes into sports related curriculum rather than equally spread across all subject areas.

Graduating next month. Couldn't be happier with the outcome of my degree. Impressed by the support given to students regarding employability and CV help. Lots of opportunities to gain professional work experience here and the careers advisors know their stuff. Didn't use the students union much as it's a city uni and there's loads to do near by.

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.

Perfect place to go if you want to ruin your career, self-esteem and life in general. The university is astonishingly bad, I ignored the university rankings when applying, but apparently they were right. The standard for teaching is appalling, they can only teach the basics. 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.

I had a great time and experience. The Uni staff member is really helpful and will go for the extra mile. They got a good stander of quality education. Simply, it this university that you learn from, you has fun, meet good people and build your career.

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
