The environment at Aston is very unique as you are surrounded by greeny as well as shops, restaurant and other facilities. The university experience is different compared to before lockdown as I have lectures online and mostly do work at home. Therefore I would improve the experience by spending more time at the university and joining clubs and societies.

University rating (4)

The campus is based in the city centre, near to shops and public transport. Also the uni is easy to navigate as it's not too big. The teaching is quite good especially STEM subjects and they have a really involved careers centre. They host loads of workshops throughout the term to improve employability and they have there own jobs search site. I would say aston careers centre is its biggest asset

The staff are very helpful and passionate about teaching. You have access to many resources to aid in your studies including course relevant books for free! The main building can often be a bit confusing to get through, even though there's signs everywhere, but you do get used to it eventually.

Aston University is the best place for people who want to make the most out of their university life. Located close to the city centre of Birmingham, Aston University has a beautiful architectural structure. When one misses their family, the Aston Main Building is a perfect location to get lost (like literally). The campus takes prides in its massively amazing Library Building and the awarded Student Union Building, catering the needs of students during serious exam times to chilling parties and hanging out moods. The lecturers are super friendly and patient, and the lectures are delivered through hybrid means. While exam week is a little stressful (same as exam week everywhere), the support provided by the staff and lecturers goes beyond appreciation. Being an International student, I had personally enrolled into a free English tutoring at the Aston LDC (Learning Development Centre) and found it really helpful in getting started and drafting my assignments. The Library Resources are the greatest treasure trove for reading and researching for assignments and projects. Being very close to the city centre, there are way too many options of food and fun. Be it a quick breakfast, a long meal or maybe just something to munch the boredom away, there are so many food centre’s and places very close to the Campus. The Bullring and Grand Central are a must visit shopping and food spot. The Birmingham Library is also located at a considerably close distance. It is a beautiful and peaceful place, a dreamland for book lovers. The Canal-side is a perfect place for a walk, selfies or maybe a picnic with friends. If given a chance to re-live this experience over and over again, I would still choose to go to Aston University every single time.

The best about Aston University as I see is the support given by staff and the value of the students voice. And the worst thing is the location as it is close to the city centre so I see it is easy to get stocked in traffic.
