Academic specialism

There are three academic terms in each academic year.

The in-class time for a degree programme varies depending on the subject being studied. All programmes at Aston University require the student to carry out independent learning. Formal contact (such as lectures and seminars,) is only part of the teaching and learning structure. You will be expected to study independently in addition to timetabled teaching, (usually for twice as long as they spend in class).
