Economic and Social Impact

A report by policy and economics consultancy London Economics has found that the University of Southampton contributed £4.14 billion to the UK economy in the 2020-21 academic year.

Wider societal benefits resulting from the activities of the University include improvements in graduate employability, health and wellbeing and social mobility, as well as social wellbeing, prosperity and community cohesion in the region through the thousands of jobs generated.

The report also highlights the role that Southampton Science Park plays in attracting talent and investment to the region.  The Science Park itself delivers an estimated £350 million in gross value added to the local economy.
