Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2016

"Panopto is a really helpful online lecture recording system and we get great support during our final year dissertations. The atmosphere is great and the location offers many local places to eat in."
"We have a good library and some of the lecturers are really great!"
"It's well respected with a strong community feel. There are many different opportunities to develop yourself and dedicated staff who look after your academic well-being."
"Aston University is a close-knit community where everyone knows everyone! It's very hard not to make friends as the campus and accommodation are in the same place. You also get to meet a wide range of people from different cultures. The social life is amazing and it's just a short walk to Broad St."
"The campus is not too big and not too small. The buildings aren't very far from each other and it's very close to the Birmingham central shopping centre. There are so many good societies to join and meet new people."
"It's not too far. The university has many different events and societies going on."
"It's a small uni so it's easy to get help but it's also in the city centre of Birmingham so you are very close to everything. Lecture quality is really good here."
"The help you receive from staff and the leaders of modules and courses."
"I was able to go on a great placement year."
"It's very multicultural, which adds to the range of societies available to join. Also, the university is in the centre of Birmingham and therefore has lots of shops. Our central library is within walking distance and there's easy access to the university with the majority of transport going to Birmingham."
