What opportunities does Southampton offer? | University of Southampton

Really Southampton offers so much more
than just the education it’s the whole community feel, all the different
opportunities I’ve got to say having taken part in so many enterprise
opportunities I know there’s so much extracurricular opportunities, activities
which you can be a part of and I think it’s got the most clubs and societies
Emily: Yeah definitely Tom:
in the UK for any UK University which is
pretty incredible. Emily:
The hospital as well is a teaching
hospital and I was so lucky to be able to go there for some
work experience which was fantastic! They’re really welcoming to students and
I don’t think many other places would allow just a student because I don’t do
medicine either so that was really really good, it was a fantastic opportunity. Tom: Yeah and in terms of opportunities I came to the University looking to study
law but really I think I’m going to be leaving it now following a career in enterprise
entrepreneurship so Southampton has one of the UK leading startup accelerators
Future Worlds, so they’ve been incredibly supportive in
helping us with our startup they help you get your start up off the ground so
we’ve raised about 38,000 pounds of investment through their support and
the Web Science Institute which is also on campus at the University. They’ve also
got the mentorship program as well which means you can get a UK leading expert
in a certain area to come and mentor you. Even if it’s not in terms of academic but more in the personal capacity it’s absolutely incredible! Emily:
Yeah and the careers fairs are really good because you can go with not having any
expectations then leave with new ideas that you haven’t really even considered
before and there’s so many different ways to make things possible if you want
to do that. Tom: Yeah, exactly.
