Underwhelming college experience
Tips: There was definitely a transition after coming here. There was not much of any cultural shift I experienced but there was definitely a change in my lifestyle and personal growth which inclined towards self-development. I did not avail of any scholarships and the university doesn’t provide too many scholarships and getting one is rare. I am satisfied with the university but not the course. The course needs much learning outside the curriculum. You need to learn different tools and techniques which are not included in the course for better learning opportunities.
Likes (Public transportation): The campus is situated in the center of the city and is easy to commute. There are buses running all day with very high frequency. The transportation is pretty affordable when compared to other cities. The university provides a concession amount for the people who travel to the university. So transportation should not be an issue.
Dislikes (Value for money): The rating of 2 for the tution fee is supported by a lack of robust experiences and extracurricular activities, the perception of average instructors and insufficient university support in placements which collectively contribute to a less satisfying educational experience.

Aston is Multi-dimensional.
Tips: You'll find many students from India and South Asian here, language here is no such problem however pace up with the British Accent! I personally wasn't on any scholarship here. The course curriculum was good and Industry- specific and our lecturers were good as well giving us all the relevant knowledge that we needed. The college has many groups and clubs you can join and become part of and football here is good. The college has been a long-time supporter of Aston-villa F. C currently playing in the top tier of English football and students do get some perks in their home games at villa park. You'll definitely enjoy being here at Aston!
Likes (Post study jobs): I would say that the placements are quite average but I've rated it 5 because the university is constantly improving with the new graduate route. Most of the placement opportunities are online and one can apply from there. Nearly all the students get jobs or get enrolled for Ph.D.
Dislikes (Value for money): Considering the difference in academic pattern of Aston with that of other Indian Institutions, there is better student support. The student union here is good which adds up the value of money paid to come here. Honestly, it's not only about the quality of faculty but also about how you are treated as a foreign student in the institution you are going. However I've rated it a 4 because no doubt there are groups and unions to help you out but the help-desk processes are a bit slow.

Overrated with respect to fees but maybe better for MBA courses
Tips: I am an Indian and while coming to UK, I was expecting to live in a different culture. However, the majority of the crowd here is Indian. My class had 98% Indians. I did not like that as I wanted to experience studying with people from different backgrounds. However, everybody has a different perspective and they might find comfort in such an environment.
Likes (Public transportation): There are buses and trams every 10 minutes throughout the city. Hence, travelling by public transport is easy. There are cabs available as well. The bus pass costs 40 gbp per month based on student discounts and the university also provides help to students living far.
Dislikes (Value for money): My tuition fee which is almost 21000 gbp does not seem justified. The syllabus is short and repetitive. The ranking of the university is going down. It does not make sense to pay that much amount for a university which does not stand out from other cheaper and better universities.

Good university. I recommend it
Tips: UK is facing a recession and there are fewer job opportunities. But the right talent and skill set can get you a job. Students have to put extra effort to gain additional skills in their free time so that companies can offer sponsorship which will help in getting permanent residency. University provides the opportunity to gain the skillset and career pages to apply for those roles.

Top in mid tier Universities.
Tips: Aston is not very prestigious university but still it's reputation is good and it will provide you with many opportunities. So you will need to work extra hard if you want to land a great job in future. Aston provides lots of support to students and especially tries to help international students as much as they can in every possible way. They really have a great and resourceful library. Tutors of Aston are awesome and know what they are doing. Try not to skip classes, pay attention in classes and you will be golden. You will gain lots of knowledge here and experience which will help you in future.
Likes (Student Life): As I live near my university everything I need is very close by. And public transport here is really good so it's not an issue even if you live far. Lots to do, nightlife is never boring here. Lots of resources are available to students by university. You will find student discounts almost everywhere. It is very easy to find part time job if you are not very picky about it.
Dislikes (Safety): Not my personal experience but heard from some people that they have been subjected to some unpleasant situations like eve teasing, mugging etc. And almost every local advised me to be careful at night and to stay away from certain areas. All in all, if you're careful it's not really that bad.
