Solent has been a university since 2005, incorporated as an independent higher education institution in 1989, the University’s origins can be traced back to a private School of Art founded in 1856. Mergers between Southampton College of Art, the College of Technology and the College of Nautical Studies at Warsash laid the foundations for what is now Solent University.

Maritime subjects make up the University’s biggest programmes, with an internationally recognised training and research facility for shipping and offshore oil industries part of the main campus. It is also one of the best University yachting institutions and the student team has won the national yachting championships four times in the last six years.
