I don't know that area but you may find it easiest buying a monthly bus pass from the local bus company. There's unlikely to be a student priced ticket available for university students. Where I live you can't even purchase a child's bus pass if you're over 13. It's full adult price to attend schools. College may give you a bus pass if you're from a low income household and live so far away but I really don't think universities have this facility.
Have you tried the First Bus website for Greater Manchester? Or do First Bus not go to Salford?
