Aston University is a research-focused institution based in the heart of Birmingham, the UK’s second largest city. It has been a university since 1966 but has an educational heritage stretching back to 1895, where it began as the Birmingham Municipal Technical School.
Aston University is a prominent university in the UK, having placed 20th in the 2022 Whatuni Student Choice Awards and 41st in the 2024 Complete University Guide league tables. It’s known for its pioneering approach to university placements and integrated learning, which it introduced into the wider higher education system in the UK. Today, the majority of its students benefit from these applied opportunities to build professional skills and make industry connections.
The university maintains a well-equipped, centrally located campus that is rich with green spaces and amenities. Specialist facilities are available to suit every student’s academic or research needs, and a new students’ union building offers a wide range of support services, social opportunities and events. Notable facilities include a £3.9 million facility for virtual reality innovation, and the Aston Eye Clinic.
Birmingham is one of the UK’s major cities, and is renowned for its vibrant live music scene, excellent restaurants and bars, and convenient access to the rest of the UK. Located roughly in the centre of the country, students will be able to access other cities like London and Manchester with ease, while the Shropshire Hills and Cotswolds are just a short journey away.
