Pleasant life

I think the University of Southampton is a modern and historical coexistence comprehensive university . There are many professionals such as engineering , economics, arts are all the best in the UK. I study  undergraduate mathematics, where I gained a lot of knowledge. 
Southampton University campus is also very beautiful. There are trees, flowers everywhere. The facilities for teaching are also very good, where students can feel comfortable when they are learning . Southampton is located in the southernmost in the UK as a harbour city. The ocean is full of vitality . Urban transportation is very convenient , and has a large shopping center such as WestQuay, Asda, IKEA , and so on . I think that life here is very pleasant.

Review for uni of soton

Management is not hard to study, but we are required a higher writing and speaking skills than the other courses. The lecturers are full of passion and have a good knowledge of these modules, but I don't think they really know how to teach. So normally we need to keep finding and asking questions to let tutor or lecturer explain more to us.
In addition, Student Union provides almost everything we want. And the school career centre also can give us advisement for our future career.
There are only 20 mins bus or maybe less from main campus of uni to city centre and all these are very convenient.

nice uni and city to study and live in

Southampton is one of the greatest schools in the world. They have best facilities for ECS because the ranking for ECS of Southampton in UK is the 1st. All professors are extremely patient. We can always ask what we wanna ask. 
There are several accommodations can be chosen. The environment around there are nice. Students can have lots of opportunities to make friends in accommodation living area. 
But the weather here is horrible sometimes, heavy wind and rain.

So far feel good

Southampton is a peaceful city as its size is not very big.
About the University, the facilities in every buildings are good, especially in ECS buildings as ECS is the best course in Southampton. There's a sports centre called Jubilee sports centre. I prefer swimming in there and the building is quite clean.
About the lectures of this course, most of lecturers are good, but some are boring because they just read the slides. And I think the daily exercises are not enough.

Life in Southampton

Southampton is a peaceful and friendly city and I really enjoy living here.

Accounting and finance is a course with a very wide of subjects including law and economics. We can gain lots of knowledge here.

The Student Union always holds events everyday which is quite fun. And there is a cinema and theater in the Uni and they charge a very low price with a high quality of services.

Good uni and city

The course is excellent and realistic. We have great teachers and tutor to taught us and they are very patient. We have lots of practice to gain more experience not only academically but also related to our future career. Basically this course can apply knowledge from lecture to reality. 

There's shops and cafes in the campus which are all really good and cheap. Every Monday, there's a fruit and vegetable market in SUSU and the goods are very fresh.

Anyway, good choice to live and study in Southampton.

Everything is good but not the accommodation

The campus offers a vibrant and diverse place to live and learn, with plenty of parks and green spaces to enjoy. It has an impressive range of catering facilities at its many and varied cafés and restaurants. The students' union has a club or society to suit everyone and a huge range of facilities and entertainments, all part of the vibrant and sociable atmosphere that characterises university life at Southampton. It offers a variety of scholarships to the most talented students across the subject areas. Excellent road and rail links, and Southampton airport is on the outskirts of the city. There is also uni-link, the award-winning bus service, which connects Southampton campuses, the railway stations, the airport and the city centre. It makes a significant contribution to the student and local community, connecting campuses, halls of residence, city centre and main transport links. 
Unfortunately, the accommodation disappointed me a lot. I was offered a room (Wessex Lane Connaught Hall D room no. 106). It was a twinned room, but what I found ridiculous and frustrated is that it's a single room with two beds. As a student I'm actually looking for a good university with a good study environment in order to achieve good result. As term was starting soon, it was impossible to study and work in a room which has to share one desk and one chair between two people for at least 6 weeks. I have been living in hotel until I found a place to rent. To a certain extend, no one in the hall could actually help the new arrivals once they sent us to our room. I have sent a lot of emails and went to student services centre and reception to pass on my enquires and problems since I have arrived but no one can actually help me and reply me of what to do once I have settled down.
