Hi all,

I want some suggestions about choices for university .
i got my As result (b: maths , b: business , b ; chemistry , c: eco )
and my predicted grades are AAAB .

I plan to study business degree in uni :

I have some options in my mind :

1. Man , Business Studies -- ABB
2. Aston ,Business and Management --AAB-ABB
3.Nottingham , Financial Management --ABB
4.Lobourough , Banking and Finance --AAB...This increase this year from ABB...hix
5. I dont know should chose Leicester uni --Management studies ( BBB ) or Sheffield uni--Acounting , Financial Management and Eco ( BBB )

Can you guy tell me which uni is better without consider about different coure ?

Can you suggest for me some options.

Thank you very much.
Sorry for my crap english cause i am not native speaker.

From the right uni, yes, but economics is much more respected.

Not really then, I would go to one of the top business schools. It depends what you're wanting to do with it - going into something like accountancy can be done with any degree so don't just pick management because of that. Just go by what you think you'll enjoy more.

This isn't the Economics section, and not everyone cares about the mathematical side of Business (like I don't, hence I wouldn't do it).

Erm..not at all. All degrees have an element of employability; however, I think that they would stand a better chance should they decide to go for a higher business school. If they want to stay in London, then look elsewhere such as Kings for example.

As a fresher from Aston Business School, I'd strongly recommend you make us your first choice if you get an offer. Seriously, the business school is fantastic in terms of teaching quality (as independant studies suggest), friendliness of staff, relevance of lectures, and accessibility to resources.

But there's so much to consider besides the academia when your a student, and that's my second reason for recommending Aston as a university. We are a relatively small, personality-driven uni which makes it easy to get student support and advice if your struggling, everyone is incredibly friendly and eager to help, the atmosphere is ridiculously laid back and the entire campus feels completely safe. There's plenty of pubs nearby, including the Students Guild, which is good and organises regular fancy dress events, etc.

There's much more to explore outside of the campus though. We're about 5 minutes walk away from the city centre, close to plenty of bars, shops and takeaways, and only 20 minutes walk from Broad Street, one of the best nightlife hotspots in the country (which includes the newly opened Gatecrasher). Then there's the bullring of course, one the the most modern, comprehensive shopping centres around.

Aston also provide the best support for international students of anywhere in the UK. We had 500 students from outside the EU joining us this year out of 2,000 freshers, mainly from Asian countries, and there are plenty of international societies which can be joined which give students the chance to meet and socialise with others who speak the same language (e.g. ... Chinese). The friendliness of the uni means everyone, from around the world, gets on well together though.

Aston Business School - why go anywhere else?

Well, it's kind of a weird story ... I originally applied for Business and Management with an offer of 320 points, but fell just short and got ABC (300 points). I was actually somewhat devastated until I opened my emails on results day and found out that although I couldn't do the BAM course, they could give me an alternative course at abs if I wanted and that most of the course content would be the same ... so logically I jumped on the opportunity like a small child on a packet of fizzy cola bottles.

So your looking at an offer of 320-340 points for Bus+Mgmt at Aston ... but if you miss by a grade or two you can always do another Business course at ABS.

Definitely worth coming here though if you like high quality teaching and great socialising too ... we learn more and party harder than anyone else. In fact, if you come here your social calendar will be so full that you'll have to start turning down offers to go places because you'll need a break! :p:


On a sidenote, perhaps I should have done marketing with the way I tend to describe Aston on here?

LMAO!!
I've really warmed to the idea of going to uni at birmingham as well!
What course do you do then? Someone's told me that they didn't quite get their offer but they did a CH instead, business and psychology or sociology i think it was...
What type of candidate do they give the 340 out to? I'd much prefer the 320. And also, it says 340-320, i.e. AAB-ABB but do you have to do it that way or just get 320? Because i currently have ABC (Media, Business & Eng lit/lang, and am predicted AAC, I'm doing two resits in business, 2 b's to hopefully go up to 2 A's, to make sure get the A, so this will put me at these grades in jan!
Damnit i wanna go ASTON!!!!!

I'm doing BSc Business and Politics, which is a CH course but pretty much all of the course is taught through the Business School anyway. The great thing, of course, is that you can switch specialist areas after your undergrad course so after the 4 years (3 and a sandwich) I'm going to do postgraduate business and management. Yes, I'm already trying to stay here for 6 years instead of 4 because I can't stand the thought of having to leave the place. :p:

If you miss your offer, you can do Business and um ... pretty much anything .. with Aston Interdisciplinary Studies (it's not CH anymore), and the degree will be issued by the business school anyway.

I'm not entirely sure who gets what offer, I think they just give candidates the offer that they're most likely to achieve based on predicted grades or something? You can get your 320 points from either ABB or ABC ... just remember that if you took a 4th subject at AS it's completely worthless when you apply so you can't take any points from that. If your predicted AAC then you should get a 320 offer.

YES! COME HERE! :p::yep:

I'm not really likely to get the 340 offer really. But was thinking other day, could prob scrape a B in english lit/lang but then i realised AAC is equal to 320, which is more likely tbh!
When did you decide you want to spend 6 years there then??
