Ria Bush, Graduate 2013

BSc Translation Studies

I spent my year abroad in Quebec, Canada and it was the best opportunity I probably ever could have been given. I gained so much confidence in speaking French and met so many people who I will stay in touch with for the rest of my life.

BSc Politics with International Relations

Aston has enabled me to achieve my career aspirations as my degree programme has taught me a wide skill set. The ability to place high attention to detail when researching, sourcing and examining information and always having a cultural awareness to the global political trends can be invaluable in the workplace.

Agnes Jacobs, Graduate 2013

BSc IBML French

My year abroad was fantastic and it improved my confidence 100% - once you have done a presentation in French to native French speakers, doing a presentation in your own language suddenly holds a lot less fear! During my year abroad I studied at Audencia Nantes Ecole de Management and also did a short work placement in a small start up.
