The University of Salford has always placed employability at the heart of its study experience. We can trace our history back to 1896, when we were founded to meet the needs of the thriving businesses at the heart of Britain’s Industrial Revolution. Today, our commitment to working with employers has not changed: many of our degree programmes are recognised by professional bodies; our courses are often developed in collaboration with, or taught by industry professionals; our research teams partner with leading bodies; and we offer work experience, masterclasses and internships as standard, on many of our courses.
Our campus may be set in the historic city of Salford, but the cosmopolitan delights of Manchester lie just a couple of miles away. So too does the cutting edge technology available at our site at MediaCityUK: the centre of the UK’s media, digital and creative industries, and home to organisations including ITV and the BBC.
Our 20,000 students benefit from our leading research and teaching in fields such as health, energy, media and the built environment. Students can also take advantage of the links that exist with our many business and industry partners. And of course, students have all the opportunities that Manchester – one of the UK’s fastest growing cities – has to offer, right on our doorstep.
A very fun and welcoming experience that allows you to gain further knowledge

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.
We have excellent transport links, making it easy to get to our university from anywhere in the UK or overseas. Salford Crescent train station is located at the heart of our campus, providing a quick route and easy into Manchester city centre and Manchester International Airport. Manchester city centre is only a 20-minute walk from our university – or 10 minutes by train. London is only a two-hour train ride away and Manchester Airport is a 30-minute drive.
