The number of
open to students has increased significantly in the last few years. - many of these will be relevant to your course.
The Learning Development Centre
(LDC) opened in 2006 on floor 1 of the Library and has expanded its range of services each year to include a wider variety of workshops, one-to-one tutorials, loaned equipment (e.g. laptops) and much more. The Aston LDC model is still being copied across the UK by other Universities.
