            It has a very friendly community in the middle of an urban set up. Student diversity and international dimension is a major attraction in this era of globalization.

          • Testimony
            1998-2001, BSc(Hons)

            I am proud to say I went to Aston as the great reputation it had then is probably even better now. The one site location and relatively small campus is brilliant for community spirit as well as having full access to the delights of Birmingham within walking distance. I did a lot of extra curricular activities such as writing for the student newspaper and directing plays in the drama society so even though the University has no Arts degrees there is still many outlets for creativity.
