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.

More on Southampton

Highlights #1 - Southampton
        This is an exciting time for all of us as together we investigate the complex, ambiguous and uncertain developments in marketing through a course that has been designed from the outset to do just that – the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Marketing. Over the next two years you will be encouraged to think critically about marketing practice, to develop your practical skills, and to come to feel that you have something important and original to offer marketing practice. Marketing has never been a more dynamic and complex profession and the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Marketing presents you with many opportunities to add real value to organizations. The lecturers will aim to challenge you to do more than read and learn from texts and lectures. They will expect you to enter into debate, to be creative in your thinking, and to be critical in your evaluations. A degree like this from a prestigious Russell Group University in the UK is a badge of status, a clear sign of the rigour of your thinking and the range of your skills, informed by research – to be earned through dedication, practice and hard work. Take pride in your growing confidence in dealing with contemporary marketing issues.
