Before I got my result, I researched different universities. I chose Aston because we have a great Careers & Placements Team, and because most Aston students will go on a placement. I felt that my Clearing experience was like a roller coaster, before getting my results I wasn’t that worried, once I got my results I needed to call up different universities which is hard, but after the process, I ended up happy. The Aston staff that I dealt with were very polite and helpful.
