Aston University
Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.
Aston is a leading UK university specialising in Business, Engineering and the Sciences with an international reputation – it has students from over 120 countries currently studying there. Situated on a 60-acre campus in the heart of the city centre of Birmingham, it offers accommodation to over 3,000 of its 10,000+ undergraduate students, along with excellent amenities to support studies, work and leisure for students and staff alike - making it a popular choice for further study.
