Aston University has over 250 partnerships in around 45 countries with a range of high-profile institutions across the world. Through the development of partnerships Aston provides exchange, teaching opportunities and research collaboration. 

Under an Articulation agreement, students are admitted to Aston University in either year two or the final year of their undergraduate programme from a partner institution by meeting the agreed academic and English language entry requirements. These arrangements normally involve the transfer of credits from the partner courses to contribute to the Award completed at Aston University.

Professor Aleks Subic said:

“It was a pleasure to welcome visitors from AEMG to Aston University and to celebrate the success of our joint programme with Northeast Forestry University. This partnership is an exemplar of transnational education. We are committed to strengthening our strategic relationship with NEFU and looking forward to welcoming more students in the future.”
