Your first year is all about finding your feet. Aston has a huge choice of clubs, societies and extra-curricula activities. Join in, meet new friends and have fun – without even realising it you’ll be building skills and experience that sets you apart from the crowd when you’re looking for placements and other opportunities.
If you are looking for part-time jobs to supplement your living costs, you’ve probably already found the JobShop. But, did you know they also have volunteer positions – a great way to try out jobs in your intended career path before you commit, and to gain experience that builds your self-confidence and helps you get short-listed for interviews.
You may not need us yet, but it’s good to know we are here. Visit the Careers+Placement centre to discover the resources available and meet the team. Get familiar with Aston Futures – it’s where you’ll find job searches, event information, competitions and more.
