Salford Inspire scheme

The Salford Inspire scheme gives most undergraduate students £150 per year of your undergraduate degree to spend in the Inspire online store. The scheme runs on an external website at Log in with your normal student details to find deals on things like bikes, stationery, textbooks, clothing and footwear, memberships to University societies, books, technology and more.

The credit is non-transferrable and is not redeemable as cash. Have more of your questions, including eligibility conditions, answered on the Inspire website.


You can view full eligibility criteria on the Inspire website. Please note, students undertaking a degree apprenticeship are not eligible for the award.

  • Your course must be delivered by the University and the place of study must be solely the University's main campus
  • You must have met the required admission or progression criteria for their course
  • You must not be on a whole year placement for which no tuition fee charge is incurred
  • The award will only be made once for each level of study, so if a level of study is repeated the Inspire award will not be made
  • Whilst you may have previously studied at the University you are now eligible for the award (a new condition for 2022/23).  However, you must not have previously been in receipt of the Vice Chancellor's Excellence Award or the Salford Student Bursary.
