Partner With Us

We are passionate about bringing the School of Arts and Media experience to as many students as possible, no matter where they are located.

There’s a range of ways you could collaborate with us and benefit from a partner based in one of the UK’s key creative regions. These include:

  • Study exchanges – providing your students with the opportunity to study in the UK, while also benefitting from having UK-based students at your institution.
  • Short courses – we can offer bespoke summer schools and other courses for groups of your students, delivered at the University of Salford campus, allowing them to get a flavour of the experience of studying abroad and benefit from our range of expertise.
  • Research partnerships – combining resources and expertise to research an internationally-relevant issue.
  • Joint programmes and dual awards – giving students the chance to benefit from an education delivered by two institutions, featuring collaborative teaching and teaching in-country to deliver a truly international experience.
