Gagan - Second year BSc Joint Honours

My course is very practical, especially in Spanish where I am learning content which is very relevant and will help me in a future career. It has also made me feel confident in my abilities to successfully complete my placement year abroad in Spain as an English Language Assistant.

Aston University is a small university but I think that’s advantageous as all my lectures are in one building. It means that class sizes are smaller and lecturers get to know you. There is support both inside and outside of lectures. Lecturers are easy to contact and are always willing to help and ‘The Hub’ provides support for any situation and the team was extremely useful when first settling into university.

Living out on campus has been fantastic and I didn’t regret it. I like the international flavour of the university and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting people from all cultures, countries and backgrounds. There are also many societies and I found myself really enjoying Aston Music Society where I love being part of the choir.

Birmingham is my home city and I can assure you it has everything a student will need with great shopping and fantastic restaurants as well as all the arts and culture. There’s always something going on.
