Student Life

With both Salford and Manchester on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of things to do or places to go while you’re studying here. Our campus is located just minutes away from the cosmopolitan centre of Manchester, which boasts one of Europe’s largest student populations – and all of the nightlife and culture that comes with it.

Manchester is one of the largest and most exciting student cities in Europe, with lots of different activities and experiences to get involved with.

It is often regarded as the football capital of the UK, so getting down to Old Trafford to watch a game is a must. If music is your thing, there are lots of ways to explore Manchester’s music scene with numerous bars, clubs and live music venues hosting gigs and concerts throughout the year, such as Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Arena. Shopping, culture and entertainment is also plentiful across Manchester and Salford – from the designer brands of Spinningfields to the boutique shops of the Northern Quarter, headline acts at the Manchester International Festival or independent exhibitions at Salford’s Islington Mill.

It takes approximately 10 minutes by train to reach Manchester from Salford, so you’ll never be far from what the city has to offer.
