High Performance Academy scholarship
Established: 1855The university's origins can be traced back to a private School of Art founded in 1856, which eventually became the Southampton College of Art. Mergers with the Southampton College of Technology, and later the College of Nautical Studies at Warsash, led to the establishment of the Southampton Institute of Higher Education in 1984. It became a university in July 2005. The university strives to work with local business and professional bodies (for example the British Computer Society and the PTC) to keep the qualifications it provides relevant and immediately useful upon graduation. Southampton Solent University continues to offer research degree awards validated by the Nottingham Trent University.
