University of Salford Manchester

Why study at the University of Salford, MediaCityUK

  • Over 30 undergraduate and postgraduate courses taught at MediaCityUK
  • Our production suites, studios and digital infrastructure have been informed and specified by industry and future proofed for emerging creative technologies.
  • Our close partnerships with major businesses such as BT and Adobe will inform the development of our courses and research projects – keeping our focus constantly up to date with the real world.
  • Our aim is to have all students working on live briefs (assigned by our business partners) as part of their course.  These will be used as a key aspect of our teaching and preparing our students to be professionals.
  • Share knowledge and ideas.  Participate in 'cross-working' across courses – for example, students studying journalism, broadcast, post-production and scriptwriting will work together to produce portfolios.
