The famous port city of Southampton is situated on the south coast of England, 75 miles from London. As well as a number of historic landmarks, Southampton is home to two universities and over 35,000 students studying a range of degree programmes.
Southampton has a rich history as one of the UK’s most significant trading cities and an important link with mainland Europe and the rest of the world. It has also been the point of departure for a range of landmark ocean voyages, including the journey of the Mayflower to North America in 1620 and the ill-fated launch of the Titanic in 1912.
The city retains a rich heritage with numerous listed buildings and other sites attesting to its historical importance.
Postgraduate students in Southampton benefit from living and studying in an attractive city with many acclaimed theatres, concert halls and other entertainment venues. Southampton’s location and transport links also make it easy to travel to other parts of the UK, including London, or even to cross the channel to visit France and other countries in mainland Europe. Southampton is a popular docking point for cruise ships from around the world.
Both of Southampton’s universities trace their origins to educational institutions founded in the nineteenth century. The University of Southampton was a founding member of the elite Russell Group of UK research universities and is regularly ranked as both a UK top 20 and world top 100 institution.
Southampton Solent University focusses on applied research in design and technology with a particular emphasis on training in shipping and maritime subject areas that take advantage of its location and regional heritage.
In addition to the city’s own universities, other higher education institutions offering postgraduate courses near Southampton include the University of Portsmouth and the University of Bournemouth.
Southampton’s coastal location has contributed to the city becoming a major centre for the marine industry. Organisations such as the National Oceanography Centre, the Marine and Coastguard Agency and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch are all based in Southampton.
