This is an excellent course and an excellent program. You study History at a really large-scale level, moving time period every two weeks, with different lecturers (almost) every lecture. It will be a bit unnerving at first as this is not extremely specific history but rather case studies 

You will also learn a lot which can't be taught. You will learn how to take notes in a lecture (which isn't as simple as it sounds when your rushing through 300 years of history in one hour). You will learn which lecturers you enjoy and which ones you don't. You will learn You will learn how to voice a query or complaint (people are always emailing the head covener if something is unclear, and you really shouldn't feel scared of this).

The module choices are interesting and worth the money if they were taught consistently well but the quality of teaching varies between lecturers from great teachers to some that read off slides and are boring. With the right amount of motivation and enough sleep the majority of lectures are super interesting and engaging and the required reading is good for reading which is nice. When you're tired and can't be bothered though, it's a bit of a chore given how much thinking you need to do for philosophy. None of the lecturers I've had have given off mean vibes so that's a bonus if you need to ask for help or email. Lovely building for lectures as well.

Southampton University's library offers a huge range of wider reading materials, and many have been digitised so you can read each week's recommended reading form the comfort o your bed at home. If you don't understand any reading, the lecturers are always happy to go over it in office hours or seminars. Intellectual thinking is well supported and encouraged.

Excellent course with a great choice of modules which helps you tailor the course to your interests. Course structure is great with a balanced work load. Lecturers are engaging and obviously passionate about their interests.

Generally very difficult, yet simultaneously very rewarding, the Geophysics degree course can have you learning about the formation of mantle plumes one minute and how to code world earthquake maps the next.

Staff are mostly very friendly, helpful, and teaching standards are high. The facilities at NOCS (National Oceanography Centre Southampton) are world class.

The only problem is that there is barely any actual geophysics in the first year, more just pure physics/maths/geology. However, I believe this is simply the case with all geophysics degrees so don't worry too much about it - you need to know the basics for later years!

To summarise, I highly recommend this course - just remember you need to work hard for it!

Enthusiastic teaching and access to a range of teaching facilities make Southampton a strong option for nursing.The widespread placement practice area allows for varied experiences and there is also the option to go abroad.The cohort is a big one so at times you can feel a bit lost in the crowd and some modules can seem impersonal but it does mean there are a lot of new people to meet!

Lectures and tutorials are informative and aid your understanding of the subject. Some lectures are much more engaging tgab others however. Study space is quite limited within the law school but arrive early and you should be fine!

The main benefit of doing history at Southampton is the proportion of the degree that is made from optional modules (half of the course in first year and nearly all but one module in second year). This lets you tailor your degree to your interests, and means you're not stuck studying things you hate.

This module covered all aspects of central nervous system disorders from depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, autism, addiction and drug dependency. Again, the content was heavily research based, with the core content covered from previous well known information, and supplemented with the pioneering and cutting edge research into these disorders and their treatments, ie. the use of ketamine as an efficacious anti-depressant, and MDMA in the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder.

This module is absolutely fascinating! We are currently about 3/4 of the way through the module content, and so far we have learnt about phonology (sounds of language), syntax (grammar and structure of words) as well as morphology (how individual words are made up). Next week we are moving on to semantics which is all about meaning and hidden meanings and then more about creoles too. As for assessments, this module comprises of two lots of coursework and an end of year exam, which is great as it means it breaks down the work into smaller, more manageable chunks :)
