Clearing is all about making the right choice. Finding the right course, at a university that’s right for you.

So, why should you choose Aston University? Here are just a few reasons students come to study with us:

Top 25 University

We’re recognised as one of the best universities in the country. Aston is ranked 22nd in The Guardian league table - based on student satisfaction, teaching quality, and more.

Top 20 for Earnings

At Aston, your employability is one of our highest priorities, and you can see the impact this has on our graduates’ earnings. Government figures show the average salary of employed Aston graduates, five years after graduation, is £34,800 - the 16th largest in the UK (Longitudinal Education Outcomes, 2023).

Top 10 for Graduate Prospects

Students agree that a degree from Aston University helps them achieve their goals. The Complete University Guide asked our graduates whether their career was on track, 15 months after graduation. Their positive responses put Aston in the Top 10 UK universities by this measure.

Top 10% in the 2023 National Student Survey (NSS) for Student Voice

Our students talk and we listen. They have clearly told us that they have the right opportunities to give feedback on their course, staff really value their opinions and, most importantly, their course feedback is acted upon. That’s why for Student Voice Aston is rated in the top 10% nationally and 2nd overall for West Midlands universities.
