About the University of Southampton

We are a top 100 global university (QS World University Rankings, 2021) and a founding member of the Russell Group, with over 150 years of history. Home to over 19,000 students from more than 130 countries, and around 6,000 members of staff, we are proud of our diverse, vibrant and welcoming community.

Our innovative thinking and pioneering research is making an impact on a global scale; we are finding solutions for some of the biggest challenges which our planet is facing. This is the place where fibre-optic research is creating a faster, smarter internet; where the immune system is leading the fight against cancer; where expertise is tackling the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance; and where resources are being secured for the world’s growing populations.

What We Stand For

We stand for exploration and curiosity, using interdisciplinary thinking, inventive education and cutting-edge facilities to catalyse change.

We are bringing people and ideas together, inspiring minds, and giving them the space and support to grow, ignite and realise their potential. We forge and nurture connections with industry and organisations, develop new businesses and support the next generation of leaders and thinkers to achieve their potential.

Based in a growing city full of opportunities, Southampton is the perfect place to take your work further and discover what you’re capable of; from turning an idea into reality and making a real difference, to finding new passions and discovering your next step.
