Residential Events

SRO Residentials

Aston University has hosted residential events for many years. They are a fantastic way to introduce your pupils to university life and help motivate them to succeed in their future school years.

Residential events are academically themed with sessions delivered by Aston University lecturers, giving your pupils first-hand experience of what studying at university is really like.

Residential events are delivered by a dedicated team of staff members and student ambassadors, giving pupils the chance to interact and hear from real university students.
