Course books aren't too badly priced for languages courses and the lecturers don't seem to require students to buy too many books either which helps keep costs down compared to some other courses! Part time work is harder to come by which may come as a surprise considering the location of the university. However the location may also be a disadvantage for those seeking work because there's a far larger number of people applying for jobs in the city and a lot of employers don't appear to want to take on students for less than a year. Having said that, the university does have it's own jobshop which advertises jobs going in the area. Being in the city centre though does mean there's a wide range of places where good value food and drink is available from the express stores less than 5 minutes from campus to student friendly restaurants and fast food places a bit further into the city, although the walk from campus to city centre only takes about 10 minutes anyway.×

Aston's Student Guild is excellent and quite large. In just one building it holds the night time activities, a Subway and then all the otehr helpful advice centres for everyone. It really has a lot going on in it. It's a really handy place to have a meeting point because it has a social/work room, as well as a shop that provides handy student stationery stuff. There are a lot of food and drink areas in Aston and people should really use them more! I wish I had known more about them when I was there. All for reasonable prices as well, saves you going to a gross chip shop!! There are also loads of common rooms but most importantly computer rooms! These places are like heaven for us Aston student during exam times, so many and you usually manage to find a computer!×

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.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
