My course is challenging in a positive way. Some aspects are easier than a-level and some parts of the course are a lot harder than any previous exams I've done. There is a mix of assessment types - for example essays/multiple choice exams/open book exams/closed book exams. The feedback from tutors is minimal at times on coursework and no feedback on written exams at all. The facilities in the business school are first class and the teaching facilities are modern and comfortable.×

There are social facilities throughout the uni which is great when you have group work to do as it's really easy to find places to work. The university cafe is a convenient and cheap place to buy food. The great thing about Aston is the size of the uni, it's great to actually get to know people so easily and see them around all the time and therefore has a great community feel. The Gym is on campus and is big and modern with great facilities and so many fitness classes to choose from. There are a range of memberships to choose from which can cater to different requirements and budgets. The plan is to rebuild the students union in the next few years and I think when that's completed Aston will be a fantastic uni to be a student at.×
Lecturers/teaching - we were unable to have module choices due to a lack of lecturers.Report
The organization of the uni also the fact that the promises made online are not real once you get on campus.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
