Aston University

Student review
By bally661

Aston University is a great central university with a multicultural student body. It is a small university which comes with disadvantages but provides a friendly atmosphere where many students know each other from across all year groups and courses. The teaching is overall very well delivered, as with all institutions some are better than others but all members of staff are prepared to help and support you in any way possible. Life outside of the course is very enjoyable, there is always something to do whether it be on or off campus and the students union cooperate with clubs and societies to make sure that everyone can get involved in something.
