Wellbeing, support and settling in

We’re here to help with your transition to university and help you feel at home as soon as possible. Our student support service askUS is here to help, and we’d recommend you join our 2019 student Facebook group to meet your classmates too.

If you’re a clearing applicant who needs support with a disability, mental health condition, or if you think you might need emotional support while you’re at university, have a look at our dedicated webpage for further information on getting support before you start.

It’s really important that if you need support, we know about it as soon as possible so we can help you during your studies.

We know that the transition to university can be a challenging one for many students, and as a clearing applicant, you might feel worried about coming to university. Please know that we’re here to support you during your transition to university – our best advice is to talk to us and we’ll help the best way we can. Please don’t be concerned about sharing how you’re feeling, we’re here to help, and we guarantee you won’t be the only one feeling that way.

You can also check out Student Minds, which is the UK’s student mental health charity. They’ve set up ‘Transitions’, which is a great resource for info and tips to help you through the process of moving and settling into university.

Our student bloggers have shared some of their thoughts on how they handled the move to university too:

How I made myself at home in a new city

How to battle homesickness

Our student blog, Made in Salford, is a great resource to have a browse through to both read and watch stories and updates from our current students about their life and experiences here at Salford.

Fuel your potential

Our students have put together a series of videos talking about some of the issues they faced when coming to Salford. Take a look here.
