Interested in promoting a message to our students? Our student communications team can help.

Made up of Student Engagement Manager Amanda Bradley-Rigby and Student Communications Co-ordinator Patrick Kinsella, the team are keen to ensure that students receive all the messages they need to be aware of from across the University.

The team work to inspire and inform students, and to initiate action when appropriate.

These are the services the team provide:

Student news

Our team publish daily news items on the student channel (www.salford.ac.uk/students). The team publish student success stories, notifications that students need to be aware of, and highlight events. They work to communicate stories from across the University that are of interest to our students.

If you have a story for the student channel than please email us at studentnews@salford.ac.uk.

Our Student Communications team have social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Their Twitter account can be found at twitter.com/UoS_Studentlife, their Facebook account at www.facebook.com/student.life.salford) and their Instagram account at instagram.com/salfordstudentlife. Across all their accounts, the team have nearly 10,000 followers and communicate regularly with stakeholders at the University, including colleagues from across the Directorate of Student & Academic Services, SALFOOD, the Students’ Union, the Library, the Sports Centre and Estates.

If you’d like to have some content pushed out on one of their social media channels than please email Patrick at P.J.Kinsella@salford.ac.uk.

Digital screens

Since the expansion of the team, their processes for digital screens across the University have changed. The team can now add digital screens that have already been created but cannot create them. The Digital team have recently recruited a new Studio Manager, Andrea Green, who can create digital screens for colleagues. Her email address is A.Green@salford.ac.uk. If you have already had a screen created or have created one yourself, please email it to P.J.Kinsella@salford.ac.uk.

The team also advise that you let them  know of any digital screens you’d like uploaded at least one week before you want the screen to show on the University’s plasma screens.

Student newsletter

We send a student newsletter to all students' university email addresses each Monday during term time through Semester One and Semester Two. This newsletter acts as a digest of all current news and announcements, with hyperlinks through to the complete story posted on the Student Channel.

If you have a story you’d like to include than please bear in mind the following before submitting requests.

  • The story should appeal to a broad student audience i.e. it should be as relevant to as large a part of the student population as possible.
  • We want your message to reach as many students as possible. To enable us to do this, please submit your requests at least 10 days in advance.

Please note, school, programmes or individual student information should be communicated via Blackboard or directly from a tutor, programme leader or a School Office.

Students' Union

The Students’ Union has many channels and outlets that may also be suitable for promoting your communications - Please contact Lee Hornsby, Marketing Manager L.Hornsby1@salford.ac.uk.
