The University of Southampton is one of the world’s leading universities.

With over 150 years of history, we are a founding member of the Russell Group and consistently placed in the top 100 universities in the world by the QS World University Rankings. 

As a community, we inspire excellence to achieve the remarkable. Our people are at the heart of our strategy and the impact we make on a local to global scale.

We strive for greater inclusivity in our community, as diversity is a strength. It makes us more creative and accelerates our impact on society. Through partnership, we aim to inspire communities working with us locally and globally to change the world for the better.

We stand for exploration and curiosity, interdisciplinary thinking, inventive education and cutting-edge facilities to catalyse change. We inspire minds, bring people and ideas together and give them the space and support to grow, create, ignite, and realise their potential.

Our people are finding solutions for some of the biggest challenges that our planet is facing, pursuing environmental sustainability, and making a difference to the world.

This is the place where research, education and knowledge exchange and enterprise are all linked; where fibre-optic research is creating a faster, smarter internet; where the immune system is leading the fight against cancer; and where resources are being secured for the world’s growing populations.

Our exceptional students share in the journeys of discovery and become confident thinkers who can realise their full potential. We attract high-quality students from over 130 countries. We educate students through University of Southampton Malaysia and collaborations with prestigious partners globally. As students become graduates, they join our wider, global community of over 250,000 alumni and can access a network that can provide further opportunities across the world.
