Salford and Pakistan

Salford welcomes students from Pakistan and are committed to diversifying the student experience on campus. However, recent experience has demonstrated that there has been a higher visa refusal from the UK Visas and Immigration ( UKVI) for applications from Pakistan. Therefore, in order to protect your immigration status and future studies  in the UK, we are taking a more cautious approach to assessing your application to ensure your success at a student visa appointment.

In order to maximise your chances of submitting a successful application, we would recommend that students from Pakistan engage with our network of Education Consultants in your country to provide advice and guidance before submitting your application form.

Over the past five years, the University of Salford has awarded more than £5 million in scholarships and bursaries to support high-achieving students in their Salford study experience.

Our scholarship programme includes:

*Academic Scholarships by Programme - Academic scholarships that support applicants to specific programmes of study  

*Academic Scholarships by Region -  Academic scholarships that support applicants from specific regions

*Partner Scholarships - Academic scholarships that support applicants from our global partner organisations and institutions

*Salford International Excellence Award -  New for 2018 intake, and to celebrate the  University's commitment to international students, the Salford International Excellence Award is an open call to applicants who can offer high academic achievement, substantial professional experience, or significant community, entrepreneurial, or other engagement to the University.  

See our scholarships pages for more information.
