All Aston students have the opportunity to be involved in the peer mentoring scheme. Students can select preferences such as age range, degree programme or county to engage in a one to one mentoring relationship with a student from another year. Mature students have access to an online module which is used to communicate important events, relevant document such as the mature student handbook as well as an anonymous discussion board to enable student to student discussion.
Mature students have the opportunity to join The Mature Students Aston Society. The society is run by mature students for mature students and offers social events and a dedicated common room with kitchen and IT facilities.
