Welcome to our Virtual Undergraduate Open Day

Alec Cameron - Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive

Scientist? Doctor? Entrepreneur? Take your first step. Where it leads is up to you.

Whatever your ambition, we're with you all the way.

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, this isn't possible right now, but we’re not letting that hold us back.

We’ve got a Virtual Open Day taking place on Saturday 21 November. Just like a regular open day, this is your chance to learn more about your course, life as a student in Birmingham, and our campus and facilities. You will have the chance to:

  • Attend interactive, live subject sessions led by lecturers
  • Ask lecturers and current students questions about your course
  • Learn about Aston life from our students
  • Chat to our admissions and finance teams



Can't wait? We recorded the Virtual Open Day we held on 3 October and you can revisit the session recordings below to get a flavour of the open day.

Virtual open day subject talks

You can find links to the live course talks below. They will be available on demand for a few days after the Open Day. We also recommend you watch one of the Life as an Aston Student videos for the inside line on life on campus.

We're number 1 for added value
