What makes us different

Our research shapes your education. Your lecturers are working to solve our world’s most complex issues, from climate change to advocating for change in key societal issues. You won’t just hear about it; you’ll have the chance to get involved and experience it. 

You’ll develop the skills and knowledge to stand out in a changing global jobs market and be ready to be a leader of the future; not just because of your degree, but because of the opportunities you’ll have here. 

Our students are central to our decision making. Strategic projects are brought to our Student Co-Design Panel at conceptual stages, to collaborate and get students’ ideas, thoughts and concerns. Their contributions can influence or change the direction of major projects.  

We’re serious about our planet’s future; we embed sustainability in everything we do. We’re championing sustainability in education and changing our actions, focusing our research to tackle these challenges, and reducing our carbon footprint.  

Southampton has been an amazing journey and it will be an experience I will never forget. I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in so many societies and take part in various events throughout my time here. The staff, students and friends I’ve made along the way all helped to make this unforgettable.
