    hey!im a spanish girl attending to aston uni as an erasmus student for next course!!im really excited about that, but wondered if you could please help me because i have sooooo much to do now, so many things to decide and i dont have many information about aston except from that on the webpage!!so if someone could please answer me some questions, i would be very grateful

    first, accomodation!i know that u can choose between lakeside and standard, and im not really sure about which one to ask for...actually, i have to say that it basically depends on the state of the bathrooms in standard, because i find prices in lakeside really expensive, but i have heard some bad things about bathrooms in standard accomodation, what do you recommend?

    apart from that, how many hours do you have to attend to class??cause i think the english system is quite different from the spanish one!

    and finally, any kind of information that you could give me would be great how is the birmingham's nightlife?and the aston campus??

    thank you soooo much!!hope to see you next september!!

    Hi!

    Accommodation wise, I think it depends what you're used to. Lakeside you get an ensuite, but with standard you share. I live in Stafford and share with 18 (we have 3 toilets 2 baths and 2 showers) and there is never a problem; a cleaner comes every day. I think there are some pictures people have if you want to look!

    About classes, I think it depends on your course; I have 11 hours a week, but some have lots more!
