About Aston University

Since its establishment in 1895 and its recognition in 1966, Aston is one of UK's most premier higher education institutes centred on research.

Ranked a top university for graduate employability for 20 years running (80 in the World and 12th in the UK according QS Graduate Employability Rankings), Aston places high dedication and drive for placements after graduation, earning an employability rate of 80% within the first six months of finishing, higher than the sector average of 73% (according to the Times/Sunday Times 2018 Good University Guide).

Students have the option to enrol for sandwich courses - bachelor degrees that include paid work placement or a study abroad year with a partnered institution.

*The work placement provides the opportunity to put knowledge into practice whilst gaining valuable professional experience to enhance employment prospects.
