    I have an offer for Psychology.

    I really don't know all that much about Aston I realised. I need to visit to make sure it's for me before I break my back in trying to get an A in Biology ]:

    Oh
    I dropped psychology for A2 since I had no interest in learning about useless studies, but I bet it gets more interesting at uni, espech with all the clinical components
    Good luck in your studies!

    Nooo don't think its not so good cus its tiny, thats one of the great things about Aston I applied for Birmingham and Manchester unis and declined them because of their size at Aston u r more than just a number like u would be at bigger unis and every time I walk around campus i always see someone i know its like a little community it makes u feel like ur at home instead of in a massive bucket of people its a plus!!! im graduating soon and i have loved my time here and most importantly I have a well paid/good company in sept to join which has made all the hard work worth it I advise you to come!!!!

    I went on the Open day yesterday 8th March. I went to one of the New Residences (I think it was called James Watt Residence?) it was pretty awesome - room with quite a bit of space for storage and en-suite toilet/shower. I also went to Lakeside and Stafford tower.

    Lakeside: Cheaper than James Watt Residence and also en-suite. (I'm probably applying here for my accommodation)

    Stafford: LOL. It was so dirty! There was a bathtub with dirtmarks and scales...smelt funny too. Each room has its own sink, which I find rather weird. Defo avoiding this place.

    -----------------

    Aston is a pretty nice place overall. It has its own optometrist, dentist and day hospital. They have an on-site hair salon! The gym facilities are huge and it had a swimming pool built last year I think - and everyone is required to shower to 'keep the water the freshest it can be.' I think the tour guide said for a year (although can't be exact):

    Gym - £140
    Gym, swim, steam+sauna - £160
    Gym, swim, steam+sauna, classes - £180

    Events at Aston looked pretty cool too ^_^

    Summary: Aston = so good. Employment rates of graduates is in the high 80's %. If anyone lives in London, I think you'll find the area Aston is based in feels very similar to London. (Although I did think their clothes weren't as good :[ ) There's also a nice mix ethically if anyone was curious about that - saw plenty of all asians, blacks, whites etc etc.

    (I ended up walking to Birmingham Uni instead of Aston by accident...they were so close to each other!)

    I think i will be applying for lakeside too Defiantly dont want to be in Stafford!

    When you looked at lakeside did you find the layout of the rooms weird? the one i saw had the kitchen on the top floor with 2 rooms, and the rest of the rooms on different floors underneath. Though it was slightly odd!
