Aston University is a public research university located in the heart of Birmingham, England (abbreviated as Aston for post-nominals). Aston was founded in 1895 as the Birmingham Municipal Technical School and became the first college of advanced technology in the UK in 1956. Queen Elizabeth II granted Aston University a royal charter on April 22, 1966. It was difficult to foresee in 1947 when the technical school established a department of industrial administration that today Aston has one of the top business schools in the world and has attained a global reputation. When the industrial administration research section was established in 1961 and engaged in ground-breaking research, the Aston Business School began doing research.
Aston University for International Students
Every year, a programme called the International Orientation Programme runs to inform and assist new international students. At the beginning of each academic year, student volunteers, or "Aston Aunties," assist in meeting and greeting students when they arrive at Birmingham Airport at specific times and in adjusting to the new culture and experiences awaiting them. The year and a group of global student advisors and welfare professionals with expertise in immigration and visas are accessible. Students are also given a personal tutor to help them with any academic difficulties they may encounter while in school.
