Testimonials

Ruth Kanu, Nigeria

"Aston University has a world-class teaching quality and has a good ranking. More so, my course HR and Business is accredited by CIPD and holds a triple accreditation.

When I came to Aston, I didn’t expect the multicultural mix of students, but this was a pleasant surprise because it helped me blend in more easily.

Studying at Aston has been really awesome, the tutors and course directors are really helpful and patient in answering the questions that I had.

Birmingham is a vibrant and fun city and Aston is right in the middle of it all, which makes it easy to acces other parts of the city with ease. My advice to future students is to give Aston University a try, and you will see that it will be a great decision."
