About us

At Solent, we offer the freedom to achieve. Through innovation, inspiration, and real-world opportunities. Through the latest tech and the latest theory, and practical chances to get hands-on with both. Through conversations with experts, with professionals, with mentors and peers. Through space to imagine and explore.

Grit, heart and imagination – that’s what our students bring. We give them – give you – the skills, the connections, and the opportunities you need. So whatever you want from your career, from life? Solent Uni is here to help you get it.

Employers in every industry want more than pure theoretical knowledge – they want experience, practicality and proactive, innovative thinking. Which is why we offer just that. At every stage, on every course, you’ll have every chance to develop your professional and career skills – alongside practical real-world experience.

We are the official university partner of Southampton Football Club, so you could benefit from real-world experience at the club, exclusive experiences at the stadium, and guest lectures. Some of our courses even embed practical opportunities with the club into the curriculum.

Looking for work experience? Our Solent Creatives agency connects student freelancers with businesses that need their skills – from consultancy to creative media.

"Solent was absolutely key to my success. I had amazing tutors who supported me and helped nurture my design skills and thought process. That helped me develop to the designer I am today and I’ll be forever grateful."
