Programme specificationA programme specification is a general overview of the structure of the programme. It includes information about modules available on the programme, learning outcomes, assessment, and teaching methods. Programme specifications are available on MAP in the section called 'My Degree Programme Details' where there is a link 'View my Degree Programme details'. If there are multiple versions of programme specifications please choose the appropriate one based on your year of entry.Module SpecificationsA module specification is a published statement regarding the learning outcomes and aims of a module and contains information on assessment and feedback methods, content, and teaching methods. The information in module specifications should be taken as definitive. Take time to familiarise yourself with the information they contain.
Specifications for all modules are stored in the University Module Directory, which can be accessed via MAP. If you are enrolled on a module, you will be able to view its specification via a link in the appropriate BlackBoard area for that module.
If you know the code for a module and you want to see the specification, you can generate a direct link by adapting the link below: http://modspec.aston.ac.uk/e-docs/20189_mod_spec_MODCODE.pdf
Module OutlinesModule outlines will be distributed to you at the start of your module by your tutor. These are different to module specifications. The information included will vary from tutor to tutor, but they will include additional information related to the academic content of the module. It is your responsibility to make yourself familar with the details provided for each module that you are required to study, including required reading, preparation for weekly lectures and seminars, and assessment. You should check BlackBoard regularly to ensure you are aware of all such requirements, including those which may be announced in between scheduled meetings.
Academic Year CalendarTerm dates and university holiday information can be found HERE.
Your Module timetableYour individual timetable will be available online through MAP.
More information about your personal academic timetable is available HERE.
Please check your timetable regularly:
If you notice or problem, or have any queries relating to your timetable or module enrolement, please contact the LSS Timetabling Officer, Mingqing Ji.
Changing Optional ModulesIn Weeks 1 and 2, or 15 and 16, any changes to optional modules must be arranged through the LSS Timetabling Officer Mingqing Jia.

After this point, any change that may exceptionally be agreed must be negotiated through the Head(s) of Department(s) concerned and final approval sought from the Associate Dean, Regulations and Awards. A form must be completed and handed into the School Reception.
Reading WeekWeek 6 of the timetable is set aside as a Reading Week. This allows you the opportunity to reflect on your studies, perform more in-depth reading, or be given specific guided study to carry out by your lecturer(s).

Please note, occasionally modules do not include a Reading Week and normal study and contact hours continue for Week 6.
Aston firmly believes in the value of attendance, and its relationship with engagement and achievement is very important. Attendance at scheduled teaching sessions enhances the experience of all students, and provides the opportunity for you to benefit fully from the support and guidance the University offers.
You should 'check in' to timetabled classes by placing your uniCARD on readers on entry to all your scheduled teaching sessions including lectures, seminars, tutorials, lab session etc. You will then be able to access your record of attendance in the MyAttendance system. This supports the University's proactive approach to learning and we encourage you to assume responsibility for your own academic progress, and manage your time effectively.
If you hold a Tier 4 visa, MyAttendance will create an automatic face to face engagement for you and will form part of your Student Engagement Monitoring information for the UKVI.

It is our expectation that students make every effort to attend their timetabled contact hours overthe whole academic year.
If your attendance falls below acceptable levels, you mat be contacted by your Personal Tutor.
Where you are experiencing problems which are having a serious impact on your ability to meet attendance requirements, you should discuss these problems with your Personal Tutor as soon as possible to see how best to minimise the detrimental effect on your studies.
AbsenceIf you are absent from class becasue of illness please notify the Student Support Team.
Please do this as soon as possible, otherwise you may be contacted about your lack of attendance.
If you will be absent for a scheduled exam, it is a different procedure. Please refer to BlackBoard in LSS Student Information>Assessment.
Catching UpAsk the lecturer for copies of any handouts and advice about guided reading. Check BlackBoard to see whether work has been posted there for the missed session. Please talk to the lecturer or your Personal Tutor if you are experiencing difficulties catching up.
Staff are not normally able to offer individual tuition to students who have missed lectures or seminars.
Term-Time EmploymentIf you are an international student, please refer to the information HERE.
Some full-time students undertake voluntary or paid employment during academic terms. Although we recognise that this may be a matter of financial necessity, or develops important skills and provides experience, you should ensure that such work does not result in absence from any timetabled activity or the late submission of assessments and does not have a detrimental effect on your academic performace.
Aston University is committed to supporting students achieve their full potential throughout their studies. MyEngagement has been developed to empower students, using a variety of student data, to reflect on their learning behaviours and identify areas which could be enhanced. The system will also provide information to support discussions with relevant staff (such as personal tutors) and identify students who may need support at different stages of their learning journey.
Universities are responsible for the quality of the education they provide and, for the academic standards of the awards they offer. External examining is one of the important checks on those standards.
Universities appoint External Examiners from higher education, industry, and professional institutions. Those appointed are suitably qualified and experienced and are external to, and independent of, the University. External Examiners are able to provide carefully considered advice ont he academic standards of the awards, programmes and/or modules to which they have been assigned, and can offer advice on good practice and opportunities to improve the quality of those programmes/modules. External Examiners are also able to offer a view of how standards compare with the same or similar awards at other higher education institutions.
An important feature of external examining in the UK is the provision of annual written reports by each External Examiner. Universities consider these reports carefully, and either take action in response to any recommendations or clear the reasons for not taking action.
Students have an important role in the management of standards and quality, and External Examiners' reports are made available to students as part of this and should be discussed at Student Staff committees. To access the most recent External Examiners' reports for your programme please see your MAP home page in the Degree Programme information section.
The role of External Examiner does not include responding to individual student queries, and if you have any queries about an External Examiner's report, you should contact your student representative who will raise the issue with the University Programme Director or at a Student Staff Committee on your behalf.
The current External Examiner(s) for your degree are:
The role of External Examiner does not include responding to individual student queries, and if you have any queries about an External Examiner's report, you shoud contact your student representative who will raise the issue with the University Programme Director or at a Student Staff Committee on your behalf.
If you are considering changing your programme of study (a "programme transfer"), you will need to speak to the Programme Directors of your current and desired new programme.
If you are in doubt, email email@example.com for advice on whether this is necessary.
If you are considering suspending your studies ("leave of absence"), or even leaving university altogether ("withdrawal"), it is vital you talk to your Personal Tutor in the first instance.
Leave of absences and withdrawals can be requested via MAP after speaking to your Personal Tutor.
Placements generally fall into one of three types:
Documentation on assistantships, companies and universities is available for reference from the Careers+Placements Team. A complete series of briefing meeting, presentations and workshops takes place at various points throughout the year to assist Stage Two students with CVs and placement applications, and detailed supporting documentation is provided. An opportunity will be given to Stage Two students in October to meet final year students who have returned from their Year Abroad placements.
For placements in Europe, students are normally eligible for additional funding via the Commission of the European Communities' ERASMUS student mobility work placement programme.
We believe real life work experience is key to enhancing your career prospects. Our dedicated Placements Team are on hand to help you secure a gem of a placement. Each student is assigned a Placement Coordinator who will assist you throughout the placement search and application process. Make sure you engage with the team early on to give you the best chance of securing yuor ideal role.
Here at Aston University your views and feedback are important and help us to enhance the quality of the student experience for current and future students with the aim of giving our student the best learning experience possible.
There are a variety opportunities for you to provide feedback on your course from module evaluations to national surveys that seek to gauge your opinions. Here at Aston we work closely with the Unviersity to support you to be represented by a fellow classmate (Student Rep). These Student Reps are empowered to represent your academic interests to the University and Students' Union. They are supported by your Vice President (Education) who represents and campaigns for your academic interests at a University level both at the University and Nationally.
You can become the representative for your course and help us to make education at Aston great. In the autumn term we run elections for you to decide who will be your Student Rep for the year. We encourage you to get involved by either standing to be a Student Rep, voting or providing your feedback to your Student Reps.
If you would like to find out more about the role of Student Reps or how the Students' Union is representing your academic interests then you can email your Vice President (Education) (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also find out more by visiting www.astonsu.com/voice/representation
Towards the end of each module you will be asked to fill in an anonymous questionnaire. This provides LSS and the individual lecturers with valuable information which is used to enhance and improve our learning and teaching strategies.
Fore interim feedback, please speak to the module leader, or a student representative.
At Undergraduate level, final year students are asked to fill in the National Student Survey (NSS). At Postgraduate level, students will be asked to fill in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES).
These surveys are run by external organisations and ask all students nationally the same questions.
For non-final year undergraduate students, the University also runs the Student Satisfaction Survey.
We value your opinions and so we use the results of these surveys to enhance and improve your learning experience.
If you experience problems with a module, please first try to resolve it with the lecturer or module leader. If the problem persists, then please refer the matter to the Head of Department, or the Associate Dean for Regulations and Awards.
General problems relating to programmes or subjects as a whole can be referred to a student representative, or the Programme Director.
If after this you are still experiencing problems, please refer to the section on Student Suggestions Comments, Complaints and Concerns.
References and Testimonials
These can be requested via MAP, in the "Academic References" section. You need to make sure your referee can comment on your academic progress so far, therefore an Academic Reference can be requested from any academic who has taught you or your Dissertation Supervisor.
