BSc (Hons) Marketing

The one thing the uni has for itself is the location of the university itself as it is situated within the city of birmingham. Other than that it is a poor university which sells itself on being one of the best for placements yet they lack effort in helping students gain placements . You would think that a uni with "so called business links" would be able to use their relationship which such businesses to help fast track their students.

I loved my degree with the placement year. The majority of the staff at Aston are really good. The only frustrating aspect is how high the admission fees were when we have such little contact hours. I think more should be done towards assisting students with their Final year project e.g. Groups with others with your supervisor particularly statistics. I also personally would have liked to have modules on psychology after uni that isn't research e.g. The traditional paths of educational, clinical, forensic and occupational psychology.

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering
4.0 out of 5 stars based on 1 review
4.0 / 1 review

A good degree for someone who's unsure of which field of engineering they'd like to get into. It involves static and dynamic situations and a variety of different engineering sectors including; electrical, manufacturing, aeronautical, CAD/CAM and more. In the final year project the student can specialise in a chosen area such as thermodynamics and turbomachinery to quality engineering to new product development. This can help the student to make their first steps into a career as a specialist, or they can stick to an all-rounder role as a mechanical engineer.

Course module review - Human Physiology, 11/03/2017

Human Physiology

The content of the module was varied but also interlinked very well. As there was a wide variety it also meant the content was quite heavy so there was lots to understand and remember. The teaching was excellent as the lecturer was interactive and made the lectures relatable and enjoyable. The module was assisted through online tests and practicals as well as an end of year examination. This was one of my favourite modules.

This module is a "flipped" style module where you can watch lectures in your own time. Then in the contact hours the readings are covered in intricate detail with skills to critically evaluate their content taught and encouraged. The lecturer offers in-depth feedback to students in a very hands-on manner in these and the computer-led workshops meaning that the most is made of the time in class.

This course is completely mandatory but generally felt like a waste of time and by the third week of lectures 90% of the students were no longer attending the lectures. If you have never done any kind of research you may find this useful, but for the average university student, the initial content was pitched so low that by the time content was of interest most of the audience was nowhere to be found. The lecturer was pleasant and really cared about students, but the course content and her delivery style were a bit boring.
