About the University of Salford
Salford is an ambitious university at the heart of a fast-developing community. Our expertise is helping to transform individuals and communities through excellent teaching, research, innovation and engagement.
Our campus is at the heart of a £650m regeneration scheme and with the MediaCityUK, Salford and adjoining Manchester are exciting places to be. We’re at the forefront of this transformation, leading the way in areas such as health, energy, media and the built environment. Our 20,000 students contribute enormously to the local economy and the courses they study on are designed with employment in mind, helping them and the economy obtain real-world skills.
Salford has long been famed for its work with business. We’re carrying on this tradition by helping our graduates become entrepreneurs and supplying our expertise to small business and multinational enterprises such as Reckitt Benckiser – owners of Scholl and Durex.
This tradition is taking a new step forward with our presence at MediaCityUK. Working closely with the BBC and other digital and creative industries our researchers, students and graduates are helping to shape the future of the media sector in the UK.
