About Solent University

Get Ready to make a Difference

If there's one thing our 160-year history has taught us, it's that employers are expecting more than ever from modern graduates. Our job is to ensure students leave their course ready to exceed those expectations – equipped with the hands-on skills and workplace confidence they'll need to succeed.

Employability sits at the heart of everything we do. Our curriculums, created in collaboration with industry employers, guarantee that the skills and knowledge they gain have genuine market value. Our teaching teams extend this value, injecting their first-hand experience into every aspect of the student’s degree journey.
