Progression paths

Progression onto any programme within the School of Engineering and Applied Science is automatic providing you pass the Foundation Year at the appropriate level.  In order to assist you in making an informed choice about which degree programme you would like to follow, you will have the opportunity in semester 1 of the Foundation Programme to have a ‘taste’ of the different engineering and applied science degrees offered here at Aston University. 

You will be asked to make your choice at the end of the first semester and you will then proceed to study the option you have chosen in semester 2. 

Sometimes students ask about the possibility of progressing to degree courses outside the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Occasionally such progression may be possible, but only if this has been agreed at the point of application to the course, and it must be noted that particularly high marks may be required in specific modules.
