Hi,

Hopefully I’ll be going to aston in September and will be doing a foundation programme in science.

I wanted to ask if anyone goes to Aston and whether lecturers use PowerPoint presentations? If so can students get access to them beforehand so they’re able to print them out ready for the lecture?

Also is it better to hand write the notes during a lecture or use a laptop?

And at Aston University are students allowed to record the lectures? So they can listen to them later and make the notes?

Also do all courses involve lectures (even for me as I’ll be doing a foundation programme before going onto the Optometry course).

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank you

Hey

I don't go to Aston but I do know that for the optometry course Aston has recorded lectures which you'll be able to access from Blackboard. I think pretty much all courses at university involve lectures even for the foundation programme.

Hi Alisha999,

I study Marketing and all my lectures are powerpoints which are available on Blackboard before the lecture so you can print them although there may be some minor changes. And after the lecture there is a recording of the lecture available to watch/listen back to.

For note taking, in my lectures they're happy for students to take laptops as long as you're not distracting other students or spending your time online shopping So if you're more comfortable typing as opposed to writing, I'd take your laptop.

My course is a mixture of lectures and seminars/tutorials. I believe Optometry is a mixture of lectures and practicals however I cannot be certain for foundation.

Hope this helps

Sadie

your preference if you want to hand write or use laptop,you can record, and aston replay is generally not available for the harder modules.
