    Accessibility

    Aston is nice small campus. Easy to get around from lecture rooms.It is placed well in birmingham very central to everything a student needs. The lecturers vary from course to course, but as a whole they seem very disorganised in comparison to other Unis and always very late with giving announcements and results. Pharmacy lecturers are the worst! They give late replies and aren’t helpful whatsoever! Aston is decent but could improve thoroughly. MB is so old and could do with renovation.

    8/10 would recommend!

    Aston university is in a prime location with a beautiful campus. The students are kind are the a lot of the lecturers and personal tutors really want their students to succeed. There are a multitude of societies to join and everyone is super friendly and kind. I wish there was more diversity in the lecturing staff, however.

    My experience

    Fine uni which does their part to help students succeed. However sometimes they fail to listen to student petitions about specific topics, especially regarding speaking up on the injustices black people are facing across the globe. At a educational level the uni does well and provides much support. Fine university would recommend for specific subjects however not all

    There’s a lot of extra curricular stuff

    I like the uni however they seem to prioritise some degrees over other degrees and give them more assistance in terms of placment searching/ more guidance and resources that give other student a disadvantage.

    The modules

    Aston is a lovely university from the education to the accommodation. They made sure first year students had the option to live directly in front of the university on campus and be able to have the opportunity to make friends easier whilst having events nearby that student could easily attend.

    join up the sports

    Overall it’s a great University with many societies and growing student community. There are many great societies for various students from all over the world. Many sports clubs, personally I was using the basketball court and was occasionally using the swimming pool. Furthermore, the university has a great amount of student and careers support which helps you get a placement or secure a graduate job.

    Erasmus Exchange Semester

    Aston is located at the most ideal place in Birmingham. I loved the fact that you could just roam around the city center on foot between lectures with no time lost. The facilities on the campus are amazing. I made some amazing friends here for lifetime, Although I just spent one semester here but the professors were super friendly and always very understanding.

    Aston University is a meritocracy.

    Aston University has a numerous number of facilities that can help students get through their university life. One facility which I find has been helpful to me is the Peer Mentoring scheme. This is one to one scheme where the mentor can provide help to their mentee. The mentee has the opportunity to seek help from someone who has been in the same situation as them before.

    I give high praise to the lecturers, who put in a lot of work and teach at very high levels. If you ever have a query the lecturers are friendly and respond to their emails promptly.

    The campus itself is really lovely. It is a safe and secure university with 24/7 security.

    There is also plenty of space where one can read/ revise peacefully. The main building is always open and there are spaces designated for each discipline.

    Aston University

    Aston University is a school that is devoted to the progression of their students, from the way lectures are taught to the postgraduate opportunities. Aston University provides many support opportunities, including a careers website where you can access placements, internships, graduate internships and part time jobs. It also has numerous ways in which they support their students through online resources, ample reading resources in a library that is open almost all of the time, personal emails for all of the lecturers, and also mental health support which is incredibly important.
    The only fallbacks of this university would be that it is very Business orientated, as the majority of the students do study Business, so there are more resources for these students. Also, they alter how the modules are assessed often, which means that they are not very highly organised in the first year that the assessments are laid out this way. For example, this year for my Research Methods module in Psychology, they changed the main coursework piece to an exam, which left lecturers unsure of how to provide guidance on how to revise and caused much confusion with students.
