    • Aston was not my first choice of uni, but it has so far ended up being the best choice. The tutors are incredibly supportive and the Year Leads are really enthusiastic. The university is located in city centre so there is lots to do in your free time and while the campus is on the smaller side the facilities are adequate and well spaced out as well.

    • I don’t have a good prospect of what university life is like at night, but during the day the campus is full of life as well as city centre. There are many activities available near the university as well as aesthetic and trendy cafes and restaurants.
