    You can't slack in any year - need to work hard from day one. This structure is good as it forces you to get your head down. I have heard at some unis, the first year does not count towards the final grade.

    Hi,

    Usually our degrees are weighted a follows:

    First Year - 0% (This allows everyone to be bought up to speed and get to grips with university learning styles)
    Second Year - 10%-25% (The weighting of second year varies depending on whether you decide to take a placement year or not)
    Placement Year - 15% (73% of our students take a placement year and we are aiming for 100% by 2020)
    Final Year - 75%

    However there are two versions of our Mechanical Engineering course, BEng and MEng, so these will differ slightly as the MEng allows you to leave with an additional Masters degree.

    If you have any more detailed questions about your course, best course of action is to get in touch with: [email protected]

    Otherwise i can talk all things Aston and Birmingham with you.
