Applicant Event - Saturday 25 April 2020

"A home away from home..."

"I thought the University itself was outstanding, both the facilities and the people there. Everyone was so welcoming, it was a great atmosphere."

Applicant Visit Day attendee

Once you have applied, if you receive an offer to study with us, you’ll be sent an email invitation to book onto our Applicant Event taking place on Saturday 25 April. Of course this would have been an on-campus event ordinarily, but we’re now online instead.

You will have the opportunity to attend taster course sessions and speak with staff and students about studying here at Salford. As well as find out more about our accommodation, student finance, student support services and more. Don't worry, this will be simple to join and all you need is access to Google Chrome.

We’ve also got the Offer-holder Hub online too which is jam-packed with content including campus ‘tours’, 360s, interviews with staff and students, finance and accommodation info, and much more.

Why should I attend?

Our Applicant Events are the next step on from our Open Days but are exclusive to applicants who have been made an offer to study with us.

Choosing the right university for you is one of the most important decisions you will make for your future. Even if you have attended an Open Day, we would strongly advise you join us for an Applicant Event. We're now running them online, but they'll still provide you with valuable insight into what it will be like to study and socialise at the University of Salford. Our staff and students will be there throughout the event, and you can ask as many questions as you like. 

As an offer-holder for one of our courses, you have already narrowed down your choices and we’re thrilled to have made it onto your shortlist. We tailor these events to help you gather as much information as possible and hope that it makes it easier for you to make that important final decision.

We know there's a lot of things that are up in the air at the moment and we're reacting to the changing environment quickly. We hope that this event will give you some reassurance about your next steps. We're still finessing the details of the timing of the event, and will keep you updated with more details in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions at all, please do contact us via email, live chat, or by phone on 0161 295 4545.

Things you can do at an Applicant Event

  1. 'Attend' our 'life at Salford' talk and hear from one of our current students what their experience at Salford is like.
  2. Find out more about your chosen course, with an online information session and taster lecture.
  3. Chat to our students - using our online platform you can ask our students anything you like, whenever you like.
  4. Financing your studies can feel like a minefield, but our askUS team are here to help. In this talk, we’ll take you through all the relevant information about applying for student finance, as well as talk to you about all the support services available.
  5. Find out about accommodation at Salford - we'll have a presentation and Q&A available, as well as some videos shot by some of our students.
  6. Ask questions - we might be all socially distanced at the moment but we still love a question so ask away!
  7. For parents, carers and supporters we'll be running a Q&A session for you to ask any questions you might have.
  8. We're holding a mature learners' Q&A for anyone returning to study after a break too.

The next Applicant Visit Day is taking place on Saturday 25 April 2020.

Applicant Events are more focused than an Open Day, so they are for offer-holders only. Within a week of being made an offer to study with us, you will receive an invitation to book your place.  

We recognise that your parents, carers and supporters might want to ‘attend’ the event as well, and just as we would encourage them to come along to an on-campus event with you, they’re welcome to join the online events too. They can either book separately, indicating they are a parent or supporter, or they can listen over your shoulder!
