Birmingham city – Aston University

Anyone who is doing UCAS at present, especially in Business and Management might be interested in Aston University, if not for first choice so could be for insurance one then.
Firstly, have to say this is not an advertisement or any of its kind, just because I have been to Birmingham this weekend and by the way visited Aston University. As what I experienced in those 2 days, I think it may be helpful advice for anyone who finds difficulties in choosing Universities to fill in the form. Personally I think 6 choices are a bit too many, causing lots of students getting headache!
The most impressive thing of the University is that although it is actually in the city centre (just 5–10 mins walking to the shopping centre), Aston has green surrounding environment, with lots of trees and even a small lake (+ducks) in the middle of the campus, not only stupid high buildings like some other Uns. The resident hall contains a range of over-10-floor buildings, so if you are lucky, you can have a very good view over the city from your bed room!!!
The first impression when entering any hall is modern and luxury (in bedroom, kitchen, etc..), Internet wireless in every room, so no more long Internet cable go round the room.
But all the things stated above are not the main attractivenesses of Aston. They actually lie outside the campus, including the shopping centre (not Oxford street but Birmingham shopping centre is the biggest one in the UK and one of the biggest in Europe – Londoners do not belieave can visit and judge by yourself!); the China Town (it is clearly smaller than London one and there's no Vietnamese rest, but definately much much cheaper than London and Brighton and … delicious "5 pound for lunch, eat as much as u can, very nice foods"; foods not only cheap in China Town but also everywhere in Birmingham, on/off campus, so unbelievable!); the indoor/outdoor market (chợ trời), just like Vietnamese market, very noisy but super cheap and including lots of fresh food, vegetable, etc..

Humm, seems like I said Aston to be too good, certainly it has bad points as well, the Internet sys on campus does not work so smoothly, the speed looks horrible, smth like that
But anyway, it's nice place to go for, isnt it????
And if you dont want to live there, you still can enjoy all those wonderful things by going to Warwick Uni _, just 20 mins on luxury Virgin train, costs you 2 pound in daytime and only 1 pound in the evening, good, isnt it???

In conclusion, please remind you that this is NOT an advertisement!
