The people who work or study here have emotive, rousing, powerful stories to tell about where they came from and, perhaps more importantly, where they’re going. If you’re thinking about talking to someone about coming to Salford, it may help to listen to some people talking to you about their experiences, hopes and ambitions.

We could tell you that we have world-class researchers and lecturers who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and preparing their students to be the best they can be. But why take our word for it, when you can get it from the source?
