I hold an unconditional offer for Aston and will be attending in Sep 2019. What's the student population like? Is it 'chavvy'?

I wouldn't say it's 'chavvy' at all.

Aston has a very multicultural population, depending on where in the country you're from, this might seem noticeable to you- or not at all.

A nice blend of people from all over the world attend Aston, so you're guaranteed to meet lots of different types of people.

I see, that's good to know. After visiting some local uni's, I was hoping Aston wouldn't end up in the same boat as them so this is good news.

I'm guessing you go to Aston? My friend goes to Birmingham and apparently there is a few conflict/clashes at night (clubs) between UoB and B.City students? Would Aston be the same? Just worried about safety/

Yes I'm 2nd year at Aston.

I've honestly never experienced any of that on nights out, wouldn't know about the other unis however.

Anyone else have any views on what the student population is like? Does it have the same ‘chavvy’ reputation like NTU and/or London Met?

I'm a final year at Aston and can confirm that it's definitely not chavvy. There are a lot of middle class kids and rich international students.

The population is about half white and half other races if that helps

Asians are smart and mostly middle class...implies it's a decent uni tbf. Also to compare Aston with the likes of BCU and London Met is an insult
