Open Days

Our undergraduate Open Days for 2017 entry have now finished. However, if you missed out on an Open Day but would still like to tour our campus, you can book a place now on our next Campus Visit.

The Campus Visit takes place on Wednesday 30 November 2016. On the day, our friendly student ambassadors will take you on a guided campus tour. You will also be able to view our two accommodation sites: John Lester and Eddie Coleman Courts, or Peel Park Quarter.

In addition to the Campus Visit, we will be hosting a number of Applicant Visit Days between February and April 2017. If you have a conditional or unconditional offer to study with us, we’ll invite you to an Applicant Visit Day. On the day, you’ll get to explore your course in more detail, finding out about more about how it is taught and the facilities available. We’ll send you more information about Applicant Visit Days once your offer has been made.

If you have any questions about studying at the University of Salford, please contact our course enquiries team on enquiries@salford.ac.uk or 0161 295 4545.

Student Life in Salford

With two cities on your doorstep, you’ll never be short of things to do or places to go whilst you’re studying at Salford. They’re located just minutes from the cosmopolitan Manchester city centre and part of one of Europe’s largest student populations – and all the nightlife  and culture that comes with it. Manchester is one of the most exciting and largest student cities in Europe, having undergone significant regeneration over the last few years.

From music to football, shopping to art culture, there are so many different activities and experiences to get involved with, right in the heart of both Manchester and Salford. Manchester 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's your thing, there are tonnes of ways to explore Manchester’s music scene, with numerous bars and clubs and live music venues such as Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Arena hosting gigs and concerts throughout the year. From our University, it takes approximately 10 minutes on the train from Salford Crescent to Manchester city centre, so you’ll never be far from all that Manchester has to offer to our students.
