Yes, pretty good. Top 30 in the UK IIRC and most degrees are accredited meaning that they are up to a high standard. Also the teaching quality is ranked 2nd in the UK.

Yes, it's a great university. All the lectureres I have dealt with are legally qualified as solicitors or barristers and their knowledge is a motivation in itself. Very good, I therefore personally recommend(:

Just as an aside, the fact that the lecturers are solicitors/barristers usually does not give them an advantage over pure academics. Often they're inferior to academic lawyers.

Although for practical subjects, such as commercial law, qualified lawyers can be incredibly motivating. I had a commercial professor who drafted $100,000,000 agreements and that really brought quite a dry subject to life. However, his area of was special as it could only really be accessed through his practitioner's experience. For equity, land, constitutional, straight contract, criminal I would prefer an academic.

of course. the campus is lovely and the lecturers for my course were so kind and helpful. however, once I went out, the entire area surrounding the campus felt really rough and dangerous. the streets were really dirty and it was such a contrast from where uni of Brum is. I felt like I wouldn't feel comfortable returning back from a night out by foot, or walk there when it's dark.

Ah right. I totally understand what you mean lol. I'm gonna go to Aston in September and I'll be commuting from home, which means that I'll have to go through some of the most deprived areas in Birmingham such as Sparkbrook and Sparkhill, which aren't that nice to be frank

oh dear. well, I'm not from that area so I don't know where this all is but I hope you find a safe route! or you could always use a bike! that's much quicker and safer than walking!

Give it a rest. Nothing wrong with the area - I went to Aston and lived on campus for 3 years.

How good is computer science at Aston compared to other universities e.g Surrey, Kings College London, Queen Marys and Leeds? Which rank is Aston at now for Comp Sci? And do you focus on Software modules a lot in the Comp Sci? Thanks.
