Doctor. Marketer. Psychologist. Engineer. Policymaker. General professional highflyer and superstar.
Whatever your ambition, we're here to make it happen.
Normally at this time of year, we would invite you to attend an Undergraduate Open Day on our city-centre campus to see our fantastic facilities, meet our inspirational lecturers and chat with our wonderful students. For your safety, that won’t be possible this year, but we’re not letting it hold us back.
Join us at our virtual Undergraduate Open Day on Friday, 3 July, for the opportunity to:
- meet academics at subject-specific talks,
- ask questions about your course,
- talk to current students about Aston life,
- take a virtual campus tour,
- speak to our admissions and finance teams and more.
Just like a regular open day, this is your chance to learn more about your course, student life, Birmingham life, and our campus and facilities. We can’t wait to meet you.
