Lots of work and exams for Electrical Engineering in Southampton

Have to admit that Electrical Engineering in Southampton is the best in the UK. The professors are all genius and studying this course makes me feel fulfilled. Why? Because too many work to do every day!!! not just work, also exams every week!!! We don't have time to have fun outside, not mention to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. Truly no time for that. When you wanna be the top, please remember, the view at the top is always lonely.
Beside that, what I can't enjoy in this uni are all very good, societies, shows, etc. 
Accommodation, depends, they have some in city centre and also have some just beside the uni. Up to you to choose where to live in.

Uni life is okay, but the academic level is disappointed.

At first I thought the quality of educations of uni of southampton should be high, but it's much lower than I expected in my course. I study maths and actuarial science which is basically math stuffs. I don't think I was learning anything useful in the future. And since we have both lectures and tutorials, but I don't think they teach well. Sometimes they were just confusing students.

However, the Student Union in this uni is quite good. Whatever activities or performances, they are all worthy of attendances.

Just so so

As accounting and finance is one of the most popular courses, the number of people study this course is huge. That leads to a big problem which is the lecture room usually is very big and it's gonna be very hard to listen to the lecturer. 

There are lots of activities in Student Union. You can always find what you want. But normally working in there is quite busy.

Accommodation is not very good, but it includes bus card that we can take bus for free.

So So

The tutors are great and the uni has a really good international atmosphere. great opportunity to meet new people. There are some scholarships available that you can apply.Life experience is not as good as what I was expecting before but still good.
If I had a change I would love to change my university. The city and the university are a bit boring. The university is not serious about most of the courses.  I feel that some of my modules in my course are not needed and are included. It is a major task to entertain yourself on the campus. The bar and the club on the campus are so small that they often get crowded and disgusting. and I have often heard my friend  The accommodations here are like concentration camps and can get depressing sometimes.but also some said they are good .
