Programme: Business and Management
Year of study: Placement year
The reasons for me studying at Aston are twofold, the main reason was due to the university being perfectly located at the heart of Birmingham city centre, which easily makes it such a warm and friendly place to study and live. Secondly, Aston is one of the top Business Schools in the UK. I knew studying and obtaining a degree with the Aston name would hold definite exclusivity.
I am currently in my third year on placement, studying BSc Business and Management. I am working at Aston Business School as Events and Communications Co-ordinator with the Marketing and Alumni Team. My time spent here so far has genuinely been phenomenal, I have met some great people, with fantastic personalities and experiences, and working alongside some of the top researchers at Aston Business School really demonstrates a degree from Aston is certainly commendable. My year on placement has most definitely added to the Aston experience, as I value this year greatly, and although placement is the shortest time throughout the course of the degree, it surely carries the best experience you can get from Aston, and certainly prepares you for final year.
