What first attracted me to Aston University was the fact that it was a campus based in the centre of Birmingham, one of England's largest cities. Therefore the opportunities in terms of shopping, sight seeing, clubbing and eating out were immense.
I really enjoy my degree and being able to participate and share my view in seminars, as well as being taught by fantastic teachers in the lecture halls. The staff are friendly and approachable and although your superiors they are very informal and down to earth when it comes to discussing assignments and projects.
During my placement at SLG Marketing as a PR Executive I drafted a press release for a client Polypipe Terrain who are proving the piping work for the new Aston Student Village.
The volunteering opportunities at Aston University have also been great and next term I am set up to teach in a high school in Birmingham in order to gain the experience I need to go on and do a teaching degree. Aston even did my CRB check and put me in a school, which was a great help!
