Also take a look at our FAQs below for more information about our Applicant Visit Days.

The majority of your Applicant Visit Day will take place on the campus on which your chosen course is predominantly based. We have three campuses: Peel Park, Frederick Road and MediaCityUK. To allow you to see the accommodation and student support services, each Applicant Visit Day will include some activity on Peel Park campus and we’ll have coaches on hand to transport you to our other campuses if your course activities are taking place there.

Once you have booked your place, we’ll send you an email closer to the day with specific instructions of how to find us and where you’ll need to be.

If you have been offered a place to study with us, you'll be notified when you can book onto an Applicant Visit Day. Applicant Visit Days take place on either a Wednesday or a Saturday.

You can find out your dates by selecting your course above.

Applicant Visit Days 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 should receive an invitation to book your place. It doesn’t matter whether or not you have been to an Open Day before, you will receive more of a subject focus at the Applicant Visit Day and it will give you a chance to have another look round.

For most courses, parents and supporters can attend the subject sessions if they would prefer, but for some subject sessions it may not be possible due to either space constraints or the type of activity that is happening (e.g. dance or performance courses).

We want you to be able to make an informed decision when you’re choosing where to study and know that the best way to do that is to get out and visit. The financial cost of doing that can add up quickly, though, so to help offset your visit to us, we’d like to reimburse you for some of your travel expenses.

If you live in Greater Manchester, we'll contribute £15 to the cost of your visit; for anyone coming from further afield, we'll contribute £40. We’ll give you more details about how this will work on the day of your AVD but you’ll need to provide us details of a UK bank account by filling out a short form which will be emailed to you after your visit.

If you have any queries, drop us a line on enquiries@salford.ac.uk.
