Support your University

As graduates of Salford, your success is our success and together we are able to have a great impact on the world.

Through sharing your stories and experiences you can help us to demonstrate that contribution.

There are also ways for you to help us recruit the next generation of Salford students, and to shape the curriculum and the direction of the University, so that they too can benefit from the life-changing opportunities presented by a Salford education.

Complete our testimonial form to share your Salford story – your experience of studying here, the impact it has had on your life since graduating, and the successes and achievements you have enjoyed in both your personal and professional life.

Profiles are used to showcase the experience and diversity of our alumni and their careers and help to add depth to our promotional and recruitment efforts.

Your opinion counts and sharing it helps us to identify what we’re doing right and where we can make improvements.

This is your chance to influence course content, academic practice and pedagogical strategy. As our alumni, there are three main types of survey that you might receive:

DLHE - The Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey captures information on student activity after they have graduated.

This is a national survey and all students from UK Universities are asked to complete the survey six months after they complete their studies.

This information is anonymised and is used to inform prospective students and higher education policy. Your participation is greatly appreciated as DLHE is designed and strictly controlled by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), who state that every institution must achieve a response from 80% of their UK full-time graduates each year.

You may also be asked to complete a follow-up survey three years after you graduate.

Quality and Enhancement Surveys - At Salford we aim to ensure that our courses are tailored to meet the needs of students and employers.

From time-to-time we invite alumni to share their experience of their programme of study, through completing a short survey to help us evaluate the course’s effectiveness.

We greatly value your feedback and input into possible ways that we can enhance course content in order to ensure that it continues to be relevant in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace.

Alumni Survey – We send out our main alumni survey every three years and the feedback and opinions you provide are invaluable to us as we strive to provide the best service and ongoing support for our graduates.

By completing this survey you will be letting us know what you want from your University as a life-long member of our community, and share your thoughts on how we can continue to help you throughout your post-Salford life and career. 

You can also update your details at any time and share your new contact details and career information with us.

A positive student experience creates powerful advocates for the University. We are always looking for alumni to come and share their experience of studying at Salford and the impact it has subsequently had on their lives.

Opportunities to get involved include speaking to prospective students at Open Days and recruitment fairs, sitting on panels at applicant visit days and careers fairs, and giving testimonials to accreditation panels.

We are also keen to hear from alumni who may be interested in joining or establishing a local group for alumni networking and ambassadorship.

Advisory Boards exist for many of our Schools, Research Centres and some of our large-scale projects, as well as in some of our key international markets.

They exist to inform strategy in a range of areas, as well as providing advice on topics such as curriculum development, etc.

Appointments to our Advisory Boards are normally made by invitation. However, if you feel you have something to offer, please do get in touch.
