We hope we ‘ve helped prepare you for that future - and we ‘d like to know how you get on once you ‘ve left.
That’s why we ‘ll be sending you a Destination Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey at the end of the year. The survey results are widely publicised, and provide a good indication of how you and your fellow graduates are doing after university.
so wether you ‘ve been working, blogging, freelancing or hunting the perfect job, when the survey turns up please take a couple of minutes to fill it out.
In the meantime, our Facebook and LinkedIn groups are only a click away. Let us know how you ‘re getting on in the big wide world, but keep an eye out in December for the DLHE survey.
All the best

BAFTA award-winning cinematographer Brian Tufano visited Solent recently to share his insight and advice on his decade’s long career in the industry.
Tufano was interviewed about his films and career in front of an audience of Film and TV students by Solent Visiting Fellow Briggy Smale, perhaps best known for her time on Radio One.

Sir Alan Parker, who has received an honorary degree from Southampton Solent University for his outstanding contribution and commitment to the arts, has now been awarded a BAFTA fellowship.
As John Willis, Chairman of the Academy, said: “Sir Alan Parker is a hugely distinctive filmmaker, and a man of uncompromising vision and personality. He has made an immense contribution to the British film industry, receiving a wide range of critical and public acclaim for his writing, producing and directing across almost 40 years of filmmaking. It’s almost impossible to highlight any one moment of his career, but the incredible 19 BAFTAs his films have won indicate the esteem in which he is held by his peers, as well as the outstanding nature of his work. I’m delighted that the Academy has taken this opportunity to recognise Sir Alan with the Fellowship this year.”
Previously honoured Fellows include Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Sean Connery, Elizabeth Taylor, Stanley Kubrick, Anthony Hopkins, Laurence Olivier, Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave and Christopher Lee. Martin Scorsese received the Fellowship at the Film Awards last February.
Sir Alan Parker has also named Solent’s largest studio, used for audience and music events and TV production, while he was at the University to take part in a guest speaker event hosted by Radio 1 Entertainment Reporter Briggy Smale.
Solent Showcase invites you to Design by Hand, an exhibition which is about commercial design in the pre-digital age.
By looking at the work of a highly succesful design studio in Edinburgh in the years before the advent of the computer, Forth Studios, hand-rendered art work can be seen in all its stages of development.
By carefully archiving their work over many years, Forth Studios and the Richard Demarco Archive have made it possible to produce a unique exhibition.
EXHIBITION: 25 January - 24 February 2013
Join us on Thursday 24 January 2013, 18:00’- 20:00’ for the preview of the exhibition.
