We have developed a number of activities for visiting school groups of different ages, including lectures/demonstrations, laboratory activities and guided tours. These activities may be incorporated into a day's visit of the University campus or into a Chemistry immersion experience involving a day or an afternoon visit to the CEAC building.
A number of outreach events are held at various times during the year. Further information Outreach activities >
Work Experience "I wanted work experience at Aston University for my UCAS entry. I thought all I would be doing at Aston would be simple boring work, which wasn't that important. On my first day I was greatly impressed by how friendly everyone was. My work experience has finished and I can actually say I enjoyed it. It was fun. I felt I was doing something useful for myself and for Aston University. I recommend people to try out Aston University. I was surprised at the wide range skills I used for my work experience. I was also greatly impressed with how everyone respected and trusted me"
A limited numbers of work experience positions are available to exceptional students.
