What makes Aston University such a great place to study?
Aston University is known for its world-class teaching and research, which is packaged in a safe, energetic, and multicultural environment that attracts both domestic and international students. Students at Aston are offered with dependable placement alternatives as well as complete support from the placement specialists.
Aston University is an English public research university located in the heart of Birmingham. Aston began in 1895 as the Birmingham Municipal Technical School before becoming the United Kingdom’s first College of Advanced Technology in 1956. On April 22, 1966, Queen Elizabeth II granted Aston University its royal charter.
Over 50 years ago, Aston University pioneered the integrated placement year concept, and today, more than 73 percent of Aston students take a placement year, the highest percentage in the UK.
Aston University was named a finalist for University of the Year in the Times Higher Education Awards 2021 in September 2021.
The Guardian named Aston University “University of the Year” in 2020, and the Aston Students’ Union received the “Buildings That Inspire” award. In 2020, Aston University was named “Outstanding Entrepreneurial University” by the Times Higher Education Awards.
The university announced plans to close its Department of History, Languages, and Translation in 2021, instead focusing on health, engineering, and business. This decision sparked outrage among university faculty and humanities scholars in general.
Application Deadline: Applications for the GREAT Scholarship will close on 12th June 2022.
