University of Salford Manchester

Tuition fees and loans 


The tuition fee for Home/EU students beginning their course in September 2018 is £9,250.

At the University of Salford, we are proud of our strong reputation for widening participation to students from all backgrounds, and consider any increase in tuition fees extremely carefully. Therefore, all the financial support we offer through our bursaries and scholarships will increase proportionally with fees.

The tuition fee covers much more than just the cost of teaching – over the last 3 years we have invested £150 million in facilities for our students to ensure that they have an excellent experience throughout their time with us. Over the coming years we will continue to invest in the physical and digital infrastructure of the University.

Future increases will be determined by the government and are subject to annual review.

The fee for all UK/EU part-time students will vary depending on the number of credits taken per year.

  • You won’t have to pay any fees upfront
  • You are entitled to a loan for the full tuition fee
  • You repay only when you are earning over a certain amount
  • If you stop earning, your repayments stop too

There is no need to pay any money upfront. If you are a first time undergraduate student from the UK and EU, you will have your tuition fees paid by Student Finance England.

If you are studying full-time, you will receive up to a maximum of £9,250 per year, depending on the course you take.

If you are a part-time student, you will receive up to a maximum of £6,750, again, depending on the course.

Tuition fee loans will be paid directly to the University.

We are continually upgrading teaching facilities and enhancing the student experience. Funding from tuition fees will continue to be invested in the learning and teaching facilities, support services, academic and technical staff and campus safety.

Our investment in student facilities in recent years has included £150 million in social learning spaces, research facilities, and student accommodation. Our Peel Park Accommodation opened in 2015 and has all en-suite bedrooms, Wi-Fi, cinema and games rooms as well as a laundrette and gym. The new Adelphi building opened to students in September 2016 and houses a 350 seater theatre as well as cutting edge recording studios. 2017 has seen further investment in the library, and we’ll be starting the refurbishment of the Newton Building later in the year.

Additional teaching posts have been created and Student Progression Assistants are now in place in each of our schools. To see more about how fees are spent click here.

The University is committed to ensuring we offer the best possible facilities for all students and there is an ongoing investment programme in the physical and digital infrastructure of our campuses. We are currently re-working our Campus Masterplan and will be publishing our progress on these plans towards the end of 2017.
