Aston University traces its origins to the Birmingham and Midland Institute's School of Metallurgy, which was established in 1875. In 1895, the Birmingham Technical School separated from the institute and eventually expanded, teaching botany and training teachers. The school also later changed its name to Birmingham Central Technical College. By 1966, a Royal Charter allowed the school to officially become the University of Aston in Birmingham. The university assumed its current name in 1997.

The university has had a long history of being an educational pioneer in the U.K. In 1947, Aston University established one of the first business schools in the country: Aston Business School. This business school was the first institution of its kind in the U.K. to receive the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation. ABS is also one of the few business schools in the world to have the triple accreditation from EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA. Moreover, in 2017, Aston University became the first university in the U.K. to have degree apprenticeship program graduates.

Aston University is also known as a leading university for research. Though all schools at the university are involved in research projects and activities, the university's highest-profile research areas include advanced services, bioenergy, entrepreneurship, forensic linguistics, neuroscience, optometry, and photonics. The university is committed to developing a number of university-level research institutes, such as the Aston Institute for Photonic Technologies and the Aston Institute of Health and Neurodevelopment.
