Good university for having industry links as the lecturers come from their respective fields, so their knowledge is first class.

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.

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.
