University of Southampton
The University of Southampton (Southampton) is a forward-thinking institution that aspires to change the world for the better. Through education, research, innovation and enterprise, we provide opportunities that transform the lives of our students, our community, society and the economy. We have a reputation for academic excellence and are ranked 81st in the world (QS World University Rankings 2015/2016).
We combine academic excellence with an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to research, supporting a culture that engages and challenges students in their pursuit of learning. As a founder member of the United Kingdom’s Russell Group of 24 major research-intensive universities, as well as the Worldwide Universities Network, we offer students a high-calibre learning experience.
Southampton is one of the leading research universities in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2014). Our interdisciplinary approach brings researchers from across the University together to address global challenges such as climate change, global health, hi-tech crime and our ageing population, crossing the boundaries that traditionally separate subject areas to pioneer innovative solutions.
Our students learn from researchers and experts of their fields about the latest world-changing research as it happens. With access to some of the best research facilities and equipment in the world, from super computers and wind tunnels to major historical archives and a concert hall, they will have a competitive technical edge. Our challenging programmes encourage the critical thinking and independent learning that are essential for the next generation of leaders and decision makers.
Ambition is the start of an inspiring journey.
