    Will be applying to Aston uni soon. Was just wanting some more information on what life is like living in Birmingham? Is it exspensive? What's the night life like? And the overall area near Aston. Sadly can't make it to an open day due to circumstances. Also is freshers shared with Birmingham uni like some other unis. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

    Aston University is nowhere near Aston.

    It's near the city centre.

    The night life is great with many clubs, pubs etc. There is the NIA, NEC etc.

    Birmingham has a great shopping centre which is the bullring shopping centre, there is the newly built library which is absolutely fantastic, their are many things to do.

    Thanks for reply. Yeh that's what I thought, Aston is right in the heart of the city which is what I love. Surely with somewhere the size of Birmingham you can't get bored.
