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: home to media, digital and creative 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.

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.
Shock Radio broadcasts to over 20,000 students each semester. Whether you've been involved in radio before or are just starting out, on-air and off-air opportunities include tech-ops, roles in the news and music teams, and producing.
Whether you're a self-declared otaku or new to anime, members can look forward to film nights, cons (both in and outside Manchester), social events and outings, plus weekly anime screenings covering a variety of genres and themes.
The Wildlife Society welcomes students from all backgrounds who share an interest and appreciation for wildlife. There are a huge range of trips organised by the society, arranged every few weeks or once a month. Members get to see an amazing array of wildlife from seals to birds of prey, reptiles and wildflowers. There is also a big end of year trip abroad, which is an incredible opportunity to see a different country's wildlife with friends and make fantastic memories.
We are a group of Salford Students who enjoy watching, performing, and writing comedy. This ranges from sketch work to stand-up comedy. This group was put together to share original comedy, as well as paying tribute to the comedy greats. We aim to work with alumni and other comedians on the circuit throughout the year. Anyone with a funny bone is welcome to attend!
