Salford is an ambitious University, with our 20,000 students contributing enormously to the local economy and our expertise transforming individuals and communities through excellent teaching, research, innovation and engagement.
We are leading in areas such as health, energy, media and the built environment and have completed impressive work with business and industry partners. We’ve been investing hugely in our facilities, so you can get even more out of your time with us, both whilst you’re here, and also when you graduate.
“The university has been really supportive. They gave me a mentor, who has given me some amazing advice and has really guided me with my career progression. I was also given two sessions with a business adviser.” - Diana Baker, BSc Environmental Management
"I chose to come here because of the university’s reputation for good industry links. Graphic design is highly competitive to break into, so I felt the involvement at MediaCityUK and being on Manchester’s doorstep was ideal." - Kyle Broadhurst, BA Graphic Design
