Welcome to Salford 

Salford forms part of Greater Manchester, the second largest city in the UK and home to over 100,000 students from across the globe. The region is famous for music, culture and the arts, science and technology, sport including the world famous Manchester United and Manchester City teams, and of course, as a wonderful place to study.

Unrivalled learning opportunities

The formation of the School of Arts & Media has brought together a range of subject provision in the creative disciplines that is matched by few other institutions in the UK, providing unrivalled opportunities for innovative cross-disciplinary practice and research. We offer a huge variety of programmes, from Fashion Image Making and Styling, Television and Radio, English and Creative Writing and Popular Music to Broadcast Journalism, Animation, Film Studies, Performance, Dance and Comedy Practices.

International scholarship opportunities

We believe in the importance of rewarding hard work and academic achievement and that is why we are pleased to offer a number of generous scholarship opportunities to our international students, allowing you to concentrate on your studies rather than your finances.
