Nursing at Salford – what to do next

Now that you have completed your interview, you might be wondering what happens next. Click on the links below to find out more about each step in the application process.

Because of the popularity of this course, the University operates a 'gathered field' procedure whereby all or some of the applications received between September and the 15 January UCAS deadline will be held until all have been received and assessed.

This means that a decision may not be given regarding your application until the end of March, when the interviews for on-time applicants are complete. Please keep reviewing UCAS Track for updates on the outcome of your interview.

Applicants who are not offered a place can request feedback on why this decision was reached – please see below for contact information for each branch of Nursing. No decisions will be reversed; however, advice may be useful for future applications.

If you are made an offer, it is important that you carefully review the conditions of your offer – you’ll find these on UCAS Track.

If we have requested scanned copies of your  certificates, we need this information before we can make your offer unconditional and confirm your place. Copies of certificates should be sent to as soon as possible so that this condition can be removed from your offer.

Failure to provide this information will cause a delay to any decisions being made when results are received from UCAS.

If at interview you do not fulfil our requirements and we do not offer you a place on your chosen Nursing degree, we may make you an alternative offer onto another of the programmes within the School of Health and Society.

If this happens and you’d like to talk to someone about it, there will be information available in your offer letter, or you can contact us on 0161 295 4545 and we’ll be happy to help.

If you receive an offer you must accept or decline it by the UCAS deadline. All conditions of your offer must be met by the end of August, even if you are offered a place for a later intake.

We have two intakes for undergraduate Nursing courses: September and January.  Both intakes are exactly the same and you have the same learning opportunities.

The MA courses in Adult Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Children and Young People’s Nursing currently have one intake in September.

All offers are subject to a satisfactory health check. Once you have an unconditional offer you will be emailed a form to complete, as well as one for your doctor to fill out. This will happen  around 6-8 weeks prior to your start date. Once the forms are returned to our Occupational Health Team, you will be given an appointment to come in.

All offers are subject to a satisfactory police check. Once you have an unconditional offer, you’ll be sent a link to the online application form for a DBS check. Again, this will happen around 6-8 weeks prior to your start date. Once submitted, you’ll be given a range of dates you can attend the University with your identification.

If you wish to disclose a conviction or you are concerned you may return a positive DBS check, please review our Further Information and complete the form, or contact us at to discuss.
