Beautiful green campus, really nice in the summer as there are few green spaces in central birmingham. Pretty lake and geese which poo everywhere but produce cute little chicks in the spring so I don't mind. The main building is where I go for all of my lectures (so I've never been inside the business/optometry etc buildings). It's the oldest building but well kept inside. We make use of modern lecture theatres on the ground floor and 6th floor, and modern labs on the 3rd and 5th floors. The SU has it's own building, which currently is looking a little old, but a new building is planned to be constructed next year I believe. Currently it has a bar underground, and hall, lunch area and a little shop on ground floor, and a study space upstairs as well as prayer rooms, hairdressers, and student services. The finance team are excellent at helping you with any queries you have about paying for you tuition/accommodation etc. The placement team were really well organised and useful when helping with my applications for my placement. Quick responses to email and easy to book a one-to-one appointment. Onsite gym is available which I've heard is good but never made use of myself. The library is fantastic! During exam seasons it's open 24/7 and the staff are really helpful. Online account allows you to renew books/reserve books. Very modern interior, lots of computers and laptops available for use. I prefer the third floor which is the silent floor so I can concentrate best. Really modern building, looks impressive on the outside. I study Biomedical Science, and overall my experience has been excellent - you get so much support and help is there if you need it. The only bad thing I'd say is I expected more time in the lab plus more guidance. I'm nearly at the end of second year and don't feel confident in the lab, and don't feel I've had any good practice at the techniques we've learnt about. You get one go and that's it with everything! That's one of the main reasons I want to go on placement because I feel I'll develop my lab skills tremendously compared to what uni has offered. Overall though, the lecturers are excellent, Aston Replay is so useful for revision (an online resource that has all the recordings of lectures), the subjects are interesting, all the lecturers teach things that they have/are currently researching which I think really shows.
