When choosing a university, it is important to make note of what services they provide in addition to the academic side of university life. Most universities have facilities for pastoral care as well as clubs and societies that students can join. These societies vary in nature from sports and fitness to interests and hobbies to religious societies and are usually organised by the Students’ Union. At Aston University, we provide an excellent level of care and support for all students. In addition to the academic support our staff provide, we also cater for pastoral care needs and leisure requirements.
