Julia - studying Human Psychology
Through my four years of study at Aston I have found that there is always a friendly face, whether it's a student or a lecturer. I feel that this is because Aston creates its own community of which people love being a part. Aston is known for its quality of teaching, so I was not surprised to find this, but I was surprised to feel 'part of the family' in such a big city, it's like a home from home.
I see Aston as a 'mini' Birmingham: both provide the opportunity to expand experiences and meet a diverse group of people - an opportunity lost in many smaller cities.
In 2007 I was awarded the British Psychological Society Student Members Group first prize for my final year research on academic sibling rivalry (influenced by my continual academic rivalry with my older sister)!
