Applied? Here’s what to do next


There’s a lot more to student life than the course you are studying, and where you’re based can make a big difference to your university experience. With Manchester on our doorstep and MediaCityUK just a stone’s throw away, we can’t think of a better place to study than the University of Salford.

Manchester is one of the UK’s most cosmopolitan cities and boasts one of the largest student populations in Europe. Our Peel Park campus is situated less than 3km from Manchester city centre, so whether you’re into music or sport, shopping, art, entertainment or culture, you’re close to enjoying everything a world-class city has to offer.

Salford also has a host of great attractions. If you’re looking for culture, Salford Museum and Art Gallery is located on Peel Park campus. Islington Mill is just a short walk away and has alternative gigs, club nights, exhibitions and an annual music and arts festival.

Over at MediaCityUK, over 80 digital, creative and media organisations sit side-by-side with shopping, restaurants, bars, a cinema and the Lowry theatre. MediaCityUK is also home to our second University campus, and you can access all of this via a quick (and free) bus ride from Peel Park campus.
