The university is amazing! People are friendly, lecturers are helpful and courses are flexible. It is gives students a homely feeling of belonging. The campus has great facilities in the classes as well as a large 3-storey library. There is great food places nearby such as Caspian, Peppes all within one mile of the university and there is an in campus Tesco express, Costa, wok and go and a Greggs.

Standards of Aston have completely declined over the years and the lecturers offer little to no support. The facilities are okay.

University has been an amazing experience. The opportunity to meet thousands of new faces and interact with people all over the world has opened my eyes and given me so many friends and best of all a family! Ontop of that being able to study what I love, and have a passion for, where the work is something I want to learn rather than what I have to learn. I literally never want to leave this environment, it's comfort, it's my second home.

Aston university is overall a good university. The lecturers are very knowledgeable in the areas that they teach.

Good university, could improve communication with students. Also, it is quite dated, and in need of a refurb to bring it more up to date.

I study business management at Aston university in Birmingham. The university has worked hard over the years to introduce state of the arty facilities for the students to use, one of which is the woodcock Aston sports centre and accommodation buildings which received millions of pounds in investment.

Good overall uni. Everything is close by. There is a town centre near the uni. It's is a city based uni. The facilities here are ok. The building itself is a bit outdated and needs refurbishment. The signs are difficult to follow especially to get to various rooms for lectures. The beginning onfcrhe year and even up to now I found myself struggling to find a lecture theatre. Now there's a new card system in place to get through certain doors, personally I think it is a lot especially when you're running late however it increases security

Overall 10/10 university. Truly a pleasure to attend at this university. So many activities to do from attending societies to going to the gym. Societies all go on regular trips and promote socialising and all gym classes are carried out by professional coaches. Even the active societies and classes are carried out to a great standard.

Campus and facilities are excellent, except WiFi which sometimes doesn't work. Some lecturers can be lazy in regards to teaching material for example using PowerPoint slides and just reading from them. Others are more interactive. During exam periods there isn't always enough time to contact lecturers or they take to long to reply to emails.

Great intimate campus settings. Activities are meh, but the SU has a lot of activities. Loads of career support and advice.

Lovely staff and lovely campus. Only downside is the amount of stairs to climb to get lectures on the higher floors! On campus food outlets are quite expensive so would not recommend them on a student budget.

Campus is so cool. The main building and library are right next door so I can just do my work right after lectures. There are shops literally 30 seconds away so if I want a quick snack I can go and get one.

Great university with fantastic facilities suitable for everyone. Teaching is brilliant and really helpful which helps when it comes to coursework. The out of class experiences such as societies and clubs are also really enjoyable.

I have been a student at Aston University for five years running now. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided to pursue at Masters, again at Aston. During my time here, I have received an ample amount of support in regards to work-like balance, career advice and CV advice as well as feeling supported with my studies. Within the languages department there is a sense of family and it was so easy to get along well with lecturers or tutors. I received regular, personal and useful feedback which allowed me to progress further. My lecturers were also very flexible and they were always open to answer my queries (despite what time it might have been). I would like to thank Aston for facilitating my success.

Aston university offers you a lot in terms of career help and on campus events. Being in the heart of Birmingham is an added bonus. However the University has lost some of its best lecturers and calibre of students are dwindling and the univeristy isnt what it once was even a few years ago.

I'm a first year student and so far my experience has been good despite the constant timetable changes and organization issues at the uni.

It is a very good university. My course is very organised and the lecturers are passionate, knowledgeable and approachable. The lectures are recorded which is a huge bonus as you can go over them in your own time and use the recordings to revise. They have a nice, large library with plenty of study space and laptops for loan. There are separate floors for quiet and silent studying as well as study rooms for groups. Placement years are offered and encouraged with plenty of information and support given for people those interested. There are a variety of societies to join which makes it easy to meet new people and make friends with similar interests to you.

The new state of the art Student Union currently being built looks amazing and will offer a great space for all to enjoy. The university is small but has a very warm atmosphere.

23 January 2019

Very urban inner city university. Some very good lecturers however a lot of disruptive students. Lots of people from Birmingham and local students. Campus can become rough at night time

I've very much enjoyed my time at university. The campus is located next to Birmingham city centre and short walk from numerous accommodation buildings. I've enjoyed studying chemical engineering as it can be very technical and hands on. Astons career services are tremendous, helping me secure placement at a top automotive company and I hope to return in the near future

Aston is a great university it's not Russel group but it's good nevertheless. There's lot of opportunities put forward for placements like talks and internship talks. The campus is nice small and cosy but it's loud at times. The courses are not too bad either

23 January 2019

Where can I start! If you want the full round experience of uni life Aston is the place to go! I couldn't recommend any better place to go for independence and night life. The student accommodation is very nice as well and shops r no less than 5 minutes away

The campus is in a great location, Birmingham City Centre is a really short walk. You have access to every shop and restaurant you can think of. The uni feels very safe and comfortable and there's shops/costa on the doorstep. I'm studying Business and Management and the course is great!!
