Aston is professional and ambitious 

We believe this is a prerequisite to realise our mission, and will be recognised by businesses and external organisations as shared values which make Aston an attractive partner for research and education. 

Aston is innovation and collaborative 

We work across disciplines, institutions and partners to be proactive in creating and implementing new ideas, to be a leader in modern educational techniques and to undertake research which inspires staff, students and external partners.
