Improving the student experience year on year
We’re very excited to announce that Southampton has risen from 42nd to 29th in the ‘THE Student Experience Survey 2018’, with particularly good results for “societal experience”.
Societal experience is the metric that measures our impact as a Students’ Union on the student experience.
We provide outstanding opportunities to round out the academic experience and to have jumped twelve places from 33rd (2017) to 21st nationally in this category shows we are moving in the right direction in delivering high level social life opportunities, a real community atmosphere, compelling extracurricular activities/societies and a positive environment on campus/around university.
In the Students’ Union national ranking, we’ve risen from 65th in 2017 to 35th this year, highlighting our achievements in looking after your academic interests, and providing you with support, opportunities and places to make your university experience the best it can be.
We are one of the biggest Students’ Unions in the country and pride ourselves on providing quality services and opportunities, such as our 330+ sports clubs and other societies, our support services and our popular venues, such as The Stag’s, the home of much loved Thursday evening Karaoke!
Flora Noble, Union President, comments: “It’s so wonderful to see so much hard work being publicly recognised! It’s a real testament to the amazing students and staff who work tirelessly to improve your time at Southampton, whether it’s the Course Reps making your voice heard to the University, the bars staff pulling your post lecture pint, or the team running Intra-Mural sports”.Societal experience, Student Experience Survey 2018, THE Student Experience Survey, Union President, University of Southampton Students' Union
