Why Study at Salford

Salford is part of Greater Manchester; a thriving, diverse city-region in the North West of England and home to some of the most open and friendly people you’ll meet. There’s an entrepreneurial spirit here - we’ve got big ideas and we make them happen. But we also know how to have  fun – with some of the greatest sports, culture and music scenes in the world, Salford and Manchester are home to anyone who loves to work hard and play hard.

Our main campus is just 2km from Manchester city centre, and our MediaCityUK campus shares a skyline with the BBC and ITV – everything you need for a world-class university experience.

The University of Salford was established in 1967 to equip working people with the knowledge and skills they needed to succeed in the emerging industries of their time. We were one of the first UK institutions to pioneer ‘sandwich’ courses that gave our students practical, work-based experience  alongside traditional academic learning.

Today, we’re closer to industry than ever, with more links with small and medium-sized enterprises than any other university in Greater Manchester. We also count international businesses such as Siemens and Jaguar Land Rover among our partners. We build strong relationships with businesses to  create courses that enable our graduates to take on the challenges of today’s working world.
