Solent University has a lovely campus in the city’s heart and is well equipped with anything the students might need. The campus is dominated by The Spark, a modern, extraordinary building with interactive teaching spaces and lecture theatres. I did most of my studying in The Spark`s main hall as it has desks with power sockets, comfortable sofas and the right motivating atmosphere for me. Overall, the university staff is super friendly and always willing to help. The Student Hub provide support for any problem, including mental health issues, disability support and career advice.
Tutors at my course were dedicated, knowledgeable professionals from the events industry. Their lectures were full of relevant information, discussions and critical thinking practices. However, the University handled the pandemic period poorly, resulting in a massive drop in teaching quality. Many vital classes such as audio tech and lighting were contacted only briefly online and without any live experience as we were promised. At the start of my final year, most of our tutors left the university, leaving us in the hands of academics who had no industry experience. Therefore, successfully finishing the last year and producing a good-quality dissertation was very challenging.
Thanks to this sequence of events and the university’s procedures, I would not choose Solent University again. However, I would definitely choose Southampton as a city because it has excellent conditions for student life. It has many great places to go out and socialise, lush nightlife, cheap private accommodation and beautiful parks.View more
I like that there is a lot of support and help in the course and that I can ask my lecturers to help with anything. They understand that university is hard and that mental health is also a massive struggle for a lot of people while at university. I don’t like that there isn’t a lot of motivation for going into university and the way they handled the covid period where we were going in then not going in and it’s very uneasy for a lot of people and really hard to then motivate yourself to go into uni when we were able to go back in and I feel like there should have been more support on that.View more
The facilities of Solent University are really good. The classes are new with good equipment. The classes are easy to be found and even if you need help you can ask anyone and they’ll help you out. A great university.View more

I am a second-year student at Solent University. Due to COVID our first year was completely remote now changing into blended learning. I must say given that is a university in England you would expect English tutors and teachers rather than full foreigners. Putting this aside they know what they are doing and definitely love their job. The majority of modules are very helpful and I love that they put emphasis on self-development and reflection as well, rather than superficial calculations and maths.View more
Do not expect to get a good job studying at Solent University. Many people who finished Tourism Management have got low types of jobs. Jobs like a bartender, receptionist. Do not expect that you will get a job as a manager or any other high position. Many actually tried to change work that is not related to tourism.View more
I like how the teachers try to solve our problems and help us learn things related to our modules through little games and questionnaires and PowerPoint slides or even group activities. I don t like that every teacher has a different opinion about our assignments and sometimes it’s confusing for all of us.View more
