International Students

Working with you to enhance your future

If you want to go straight to the top, you really need to look at the reputation of the Business School. As students, we already know how good Aston Business School is, but it’s great to see we are acknowledged by employers, other universities and also professional bodies.'
Irfan Badakshi, Marketing Graduate

Welcome to Aston Business School. Our global reputation means that just under a quarter of our undergraduates are non-UK students, representing 74 countries. The breadth of appeal means that we receive applications from countries such as Vietnam, USA, India, China and Kazakhstan.

This international diversity is increasingly reflected in the international focus of our programmes, which include many internationally themed modules.

Gain graduate-level work experience

If you are an international student (outside of the EU), you have the option of studying for either three or four years. If you decide to study on a four year degree, you will be able to undertake a placement. This means you will be working in a graduate level position for one year providing you with the opportunity to gain valuable commercial experience and to earn a salary. The placement year takes place in the third year of a four year degree. Although not compulsory for non-EU students you are positively encouraged to undertake the placement because of the additional experience and skills you are able to gain.

We also run an exchange programme which provides international students at our partner institutions the opportunity to study at Aston Business School.

Our International Office staff regularly visit a number of countries to participate in Higher Education exhibitions and college visits, giving you the chance to talk to someone in person. Details of forthcoming visits as well as further information for international students on fees, accommodation and student welfare can be found here.
