Freshers Week was exciting and in a way, really wholesome. It allowed our course to come together in a non-traditional way, given the circumstances. Solent accommodation is simple, and it is a hub in the centre of Southampton. It has modern spaces where you can socialise and work. Solent University offers fantastic facilities in its well-stacked libraries, work areas and classrooms. Particularly, the media facilities are top class. Courses at Solent are expansive and come with first-class teaching from its lecturers and tutors. City life in Southampton is bustling - from shopping centres, to it's parks and it's leisure facilities. You can find everything at the heart of the city, and everything is in walking distance.

I've had the best experience at university thus far! There is always help when needed and student support. A lot of societies to join, so there is something for everybody! There isn't a moment where I've ever felt left out. A great place to study, as the course quality is at its best plus it's located in the city centre!! For my party people, you would enjoy the night life here it's always popping and finding a job isn't difficult as they cater for students.

It was such a great experience and a great opportunity to meet new people The accommodation overall was clean obviously noisy but that's understandable haha students love to party the most important thing is the safety of the buildings which is excellent. The facilities such as the library, classrooms , sports areas and the student union are excellent and available for every student it's a same we can't use them anymore but health and safety is a priority due to covid of course. The course was excellent and the way of monitor the learning always motivated to learn more. My personal experience living in Southampton for the past 2 and a half years is more than great, people are polite always ready to provide help whenever is needed ,make you feel welcome and lots of opportunities to be a part of the community.

Freshers week was quite exciting and fun. Solent university did a great job by introducing interesting and useful thing and places. The atmosphere was really nice and unique. Their accommodations are in a good area close to the university. Specious and new fresh rooms. All of the facilities are really good. The library is really well organized and with plenty of space and computers. The classrooms are modern with a creative and inspirational atmosphere. The course by itself it's one of the most creative ones at Solent. We learn a lot of new things every week and then we practice them. Lectures are well organized and interesting. The student life in Southampton is quite interesting. There are a lot of places suitable for students. You can have the best university years here.

So far my experience at uni has been great! This involves the teaching down to the great and tanlented people I've met! The area is also very convenient and easy to get to. And don't forget the nightlife! Just amazingly good.

Good Accommodation was okay, it had just been refurbished when I started and it was all new Facilities were great, there was a lot for students to use including a basement area in one of the blocks to study or chill out. The course was great very interactive with students and always interesting, the lecturers were incredible they always went above and beyond to help us whether it was course related or not, they always made and effort with the socials and they were better than I could have asked for, they made my uni experience City life was good, you get used to everything being on your doorstep, although you don't get the homely feel like you do in the country, but the social side of it is great

It was really fun as there was lots of activities and societies you could join in the University. There was also lots of great offers available for us students. Overall, it is great as it also has facilities such as gym , study room, common rooms and great kitchen with spacious room. The library and classroom quiet big and modern. There is a new built sports facilities as well. The lectures are online at the moment due to pandemic but its very guideful and informative. It was Vibrant and busy lifestyle.

There were so many events on. We were welcomed to campus so wonderfully and informed of all the great opportunities at the university. I stayed in private accommodation as I'm a mature student, however my friends stayed in halls and they were fine. The library is fantastic, and the staff are so unbelievably helpful. The student hub is a god send. There are so many study areas which are great for different requirements. The classes are small so the lecturers are able to be very thorough. The course is so much fun and encourages us to be creative and challenge ourselves. There are great places to eat and drink. The town is predominantly aimed at students, there being two universities, so it's a great place to study.

It was very good. We were given a mini project to do meaning we got a glimpse into what the course/assignments entail as well as being taught the basics The accomodation was a nice accommodation to live at, the any issues were fixed and we were given a range of choices as to which we wanted to live in and a range of prices The facilities are excellent, the library has any book you could need as well as a huge amount of computers and macs, the photography and filming facilities are amazing The course is extremely applicable to the real life industry, giving us a good experience and teaching us employability City life is so much fun and offers you everything you want to get from the social side of your uni experience, as well as the up side of everything being in walking distance
