Being in the 2nd city of the UK, there was always something going on. Whether it was Student Reps going with groups of freshers going to Broad Street every night, or the campus tour which is currently being renovated still. I was surprise how modern and sleek the rooms looked, digital keys, wide and opening kitchen spaces and decent sized closet. Overall, I think the activities could have been a bit more varied, that being the reason why it haven’t given it a 5 stars. Otherwise, if you liked partying and already had an idea of what societies you liked then you didn’t have any problems.

Good freshers week. More focus on clubbing but with recent reviews that is changing. International welcome is pretty well organized. Get ready to have the most wonderful time in your university life

My freshers experience was amazing. Aston really pulled out all the stops to make me feel welcome as a fresher. From free food stalls to the plethora of societies that aston has to offer, you can be certain that freshers week is full of things to make you feel integrated as an aston student

Not great events, racism very prevalent, move in easy, hard to meet new people. Best advice is to join as many societies as you can & try to make friends in lectures fast

Ok, some good events. All a bit too gimmicky though. Not enough events for casual drinkers. I'd recommend seeing Birmingham's less known events, there's never a shortage of them around the place.

I loved freshers, met some of the coolest and dopest people, thought it would be a difficult transition from college to university, bit it wasnt! It was a week off getting to know everyone, bonding, meeting your course mates, Aston made it a wonderful experience! For those joining next year, its a breeze! You will love anywhere you go and will make the best of friends, goodluck!

Moving in day was a bit of a task because of the weather and long queues but the students that were helping out were so lovely and they made the experience much better. The SU had prepared loads of day activities and night events for freshers week, as well as the individual societies having their own freshers events that you could attend. My tips are to go to as many events as possible and join as many societies as this means you can meet new people and make friends. Also don’t bring to many things!! I practically brought my whole room with me to uni and there may not be as much space for the things you actually need. And lastly remember to enjoy yourself, your first freshers is a unique experience and you should go out and enjoy it.

Freshers week was a very positive experience for me as the move in was very easy due to the help of the first love Aston society which helped move my bags into my accommodation and direct me to where I had to be to enroll. The enrolment process took no more than an hour which I found very easy as I was expecting to wait much longer. The nightlife was incredible with countless bars, clubs and raves to chose from in Birmingham. I also met people throughout the week that have become some of my best friends and have moulded my overall uni experience

Moving in was great and everyone involved within this transition was very friendly and helpful. On top of that a lot of starter packs were provided to ensure that I knew what I was doing and I was told what to do if I needed any help. There were many different types of freshers events on to meet new friends.
