Teacher Training, Year 2
I was in the top accommodation at the University which meant that the amount I paid to stay there was a lot; however I think that it was worth it due to the fact that the rooms were very spacious. As well as this, the whole building was brand new and so the kitchens were very easy to keep clean, with the help of a weekly cleaner.
Due to only having around 8 contact hours a week, I have only experienced some of the Highfield campus buildings, but the ones that I have been in have been very well laid out and mostly modernised. The SU bar has many social nights a week and the prices are VERY reasonable, making it somewhere that is frequently busy.
I enjoy my course because we have a small intake and so the contact that we can have with the lecturers is very personal, meaning that we receive a lot of support in any areas we need. The course is also fairly broad which means that you can choose what interests you.
I, personally, really enjoy the city of Southampton because it is large and so there are a lot of amenities but it is not too large meaning that it does not get too busy. There are a range of shops and restaurants available, and the nightlife is very good.
I think that students should be aware of the structure of the lectures, such as being expected to speak up due to there only being around 15 people most of the time and so lecturers know everyone by name.

It hasn't always been easy with my anxiety but the friends I've made have been able to help me cope with the rough times and I believe I have made friends for life.
