Hey guys wats your views on this university ?
Has anyone applied?
Anyone interested in the Business courses on offer?
Business....iz dat a good degree to pursue....can you expect a fat salary with this degree?
Aston seems to have got 85% of their Graduates with a 2:1 or a 1:1 last year....according to times university guide, how do i find out how many of those got a 1:1 ?

Do you know anyone that goes to Aston atm ? If so what do they think of it ? The Business Courses on offer?

I applied to Aston for Business administration and Human Pyschology. I got an Offer of 280 UCAS points ie. BBC

There is a lot of work to be done, becuase it's joint honours; so you can expect that. The year working in an industry is really good, employers love their work experience. If you have that, an employer could choose you over a graduate from oxford depending on the job.

The university i found was a bit dull, not dull in the sense of cambridge or oxford, but just a bit plain and boring and dark.

It's up to personal preference i guess.

Oxbridge ain't that dull, the town of oxford is well nice. I agree however that their work experience is highly desired by employers.
Where else you lookin at?

I don't mean oxbridge is dull, i typed wrong. I meant dingy, it's dark. Which people argue gives it atmosphere.

I don't know anything about the uni or the area aston, but from what I've seen I wouldn't say birmingham city is 'nice' exactly, but then not many cities are these days.

Birmingham City Centre, actually aint bad as far as cities centres go; good shopping, good nightlife (doesn't beat of Nottingham but still). The area of Aston itself aint all that clever, and it had well publisised gun crime problems over New Year.

Have a good look around the website and delve into your subjects' home page, they should be able to tell you more about what pass rates they have, and the destinations of their graduates.
