Aston University is distinctive in that we have strong league table positions across a range of different criteria.
University league tables are not the only way to choose a University and are subject to fluctuations from year to year due to the similar scores of Universities placed in the top 30 and changes in methodology each year. However, league tables do give an indication of quality and reputation, both overall and in specific subject areas.
Outstanding graduate job prospects
We are particularly proud of our strong graduate employment record. Our degrees are distinct from those of many other Universities as they offer relevant, and usually paid, sandwich placement year or year abroad opportunities. We also have strong links with business, industry and the professions.
A great place to live and study
Aston University is a lively, supportive and friendly place, and our students get the best of both worlds: self contained campus living in the centre of Birmingham, a fantastic student city. These important factors are not covered in University league tables.
