UG Open Days at Salford

Our Open Days for 2018 entry will be held on 7 October 2017 and 28 October 2017. For our October dates, the booking pages will open around 6 weeks before each event but in the meantime you can register your interest, and we will contact you as soon as the booking pages are available.

If you have any questions about studying at the University of Salford, please contact our course enquiries team on or 0161 295 4545.


Choosing the right university is an important decision, so it’s a good idea to come along and take a look round the campus in person.

As well as touring our buildings and seeing what facilities we have on offer, you’ll get the chance to speak to our academic staff and current students, giving you a real feel of what it’s like to study at the University of Salford.

Our Open Days run from 10am – 4pm and are structured to allow you the flexibility to spend as much or as little time as you’d like on campus. There will be talks and tours both in the morning and afternoon across each of our three campuses and you can plan your own schedule by choosing to attend the events and times that suit you.
