University of Salford

Our vision: “By pioneering exceptional industry partnerships we will lead the way in real world experiences preparing students for life.”

Salford is an ambitious University, with our 20,000 students contributing enormously to the local economy and our expertise transforming individuals and communities through excellent teaching, research, innovation and engagement.

Our courses open doors to rewarding and challenging careers in health, science, engineering, the arts, the built environment, media, music, law and business. You’ll benefit from the research expertise of our academics who have a strong track record of leading influential research projects and are highly respected in their fields.

Our historic tradition of innovative thinking and commercial success means we’re widely regarded as one of the UK’s most enterprising universities. The Government’s latest research performance assessment exercise, REF 2014, judged 50{64daed16f088321b4d354bf5c284fe7dd0bec43a34e6f78d331e7c15501218fe} of our research to be ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in terms of its originality, significance and rigour. Not only does Salford’s research directly benefit people’s everyday lives, but it also means that our teaching and business partnerships benefit as well.

We are investing in state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, new student accommodation and in extending our global reach and impact. For example, our new campus at MediaCityUK offers unparalleled opportunities for our students to work alongside internationally renowned organisations, and also provides world-class facilities for multidisciplinary collaborations.

Our main campus is set in 46 square kilometres of lush parkland. We have a green space bursting with activities so you can make the most of your time with us. Over 18,000 students are in attendance at the university, including international students from over 100 countries. The diversity of our student community means you will enjoy a truly cosmopolitan experience.
