I liked that my instructor was understanding, flexible, supportive, and knowledgeable. With the positive and constructive feedback I received from my instructor, I can say that my way of thinking as well as handling questions have evolved. Now, I know how to take the IELTS test. I have become more aware of what to expect in the test and how to perform better and score high.

Although, overloaded by my daily work and responsibilities, I have been enjoying reading the contents and working on this course’s assignments. The contents of the modules have been carefully selected in a way to add hands-on knowledge to participants. The assignments helped me grasp the message from the course and encouraged me to work on implementing it in my job. The instructor was meticulous in all the aspects of the assignment review. From content to grammar to formatting, I really benefited from the instructor’s positive approach to correct my texts.

Consistent follow-up from the university’s team (dean, instructors, advisory office, registrar office) were beyond expectations. The advisory office support was great. The curriculum has changed my conceptual ideas about managing real life. Looking forward to complete my master’s degree with Aston American University. Thanks you all.

It has been an excellent experience to study this level of English for 8 weeks. I feel my English has improved in conversation and writing with my tutor, Tim Johnson. He was always on time and very talkative in the weekly live sessions. And thanks also to the whole team of Aston American University. Always present on the course. This is the best online English course I have ever taken. Regards.

Aston American University is an excellent university to study English, during the course of my course, I felt supported and guided in the best way, always ready for any questions. My experience has been quite good, I have acquired new knowledge, and I feel more prepared to speak and write the language. I want more people to join this course because it really is worth it and would be a unique opportunity.

Everything was perfect for me. I took the time to finish each course and all the correction helped me to improve. I liked my contact with my instructor. Now I know how to read a balance sheet or an income statement. At first, I thought it was too difficult for me, but if you follow step by step for each module, it's easy and clear. I'm ready to work in the USA!

I really loved this course and will definitely start looking for a job in this field! I don't know how it could be improved. The course feedback was very constructive; especially helpful were the tips for my referencing. My instructor, professor Christiansen was very fast correcting my assignments. The professor also returned my questions - I asked by email - very fast. I never felt I had to wait because I am an online student. Thank you professor!
