i went for an offer holder day to the med school and it was so nice and new and modern and well-equipped, that's both the simulation rooms and lecture rooms. they also have a gym on site, a costa and the university itself is like a 10 minute walk from the Bullring, so very well located. im not too sure about the pharmacy school but if they spend time at the med building then its rlly nice. id recommend going to an offer holder day if there is one
also a lot of people hate on aston as they feel like its got a bad reputation and stuff but at the end of the day its up to you to make sure that u like the course structure and facilities because youre going to be the one doing the degree not the people who hold perceptions of the uni based on stereotypes of it being "bad"
