5 things to know - New Students!

Congratulations on getting into the University of Salford! 

Below you will find essential teaching timetable information that you need to know as a new student.

1.  When and where will I find my teaching timetable?

  • Teaching timetable information for new students is available from August.
  • Teaching timetables can be viewed online at
  • This is known as your 'Programme Timetable'. (Note: You don't need to login to view your Programme Timetable)
  • You will need to know your block code. Sometimes called a programme or course code; your block code relates to your unique UCAS code found on your offer letter.

2. What is a Programme Timetable?

  • Programme timetables include all possible timetable events for your course.
  • Programme timetables are accessed by selecting your 'Programme of Study' and 'Programme Year'  from the drop-down lists (if you are unsure of your programme of study, just askUS!)
  • At this stage, your programme timetable will not include your group information.

3. Which group(s) will I be in and when will I know?

  • Group information for new students is available from 'Programme Welcome Week' onwards (from 18th September).
  • Groups can only be decided after registration is completed, this is a task completed by your School Office at the start of the year.
  • Your School Office will then let you know how to view your group information.

4. Where do I go?

When accessing your teaching timetable online at, each timetabled events show three important pieces of information:

  • The code and title of the event (this tells you what the event is)
  • The building and room number of the event (this tells you where to go)
  • The type of the event (this tells you what kind of event it is)

Note: You can find more information on your event by clicking on it for more details.
