Study with us

At Solent, our aim is to deliver innovative, inclusive and intellectually stimulating teaching, to develop self-confident and highly employable graduates.

All our courses are designed with employability in mind, which makes industry-based learning a priority.

We make the most of partnerships with local businesses and organisations to offer students the most relevant experience that will provide the necessary skills for their future career. Notable partners include Southampton FC,  ABP Southampton Marathon, B&Q and Carnival.

Designed with learning fully in mind, it’s no wonder our newest building, the Spark, won the Best Student Experience category at the Education Estates Awards.

The Spark opened at the start of the 2016/17 academic year and is part of a £100 million investment to upgrade our East Park Terrace campus.

Designed to enable a more informal teaching culture, the building is equipped to break down the teacher-student hierarchy. Most of the furniture is moveable, giving students the opportunity to create learning spaces that work for them.
