In a few words
"I would say that some of the resources that larger unis provide their students aren't available here because Aston is a smaller uni. For example, I can't use any practice room facilities without paying and joining a club when access to similar utilities is free or much more accessible for students at other universities. The lack of focus and support for the arts is relatively evident on campus and societies that do have this kind of focus don't really get much support from the SU compared to sports clubs and academics-related societies."
