Postgraduate study

Your time as a student doesn't need to end here - why not consider a postgraduate course at Salford? It's a great option, whether you want to follow your passion, advance your career or enter the world of academia.

The team host events throughout the year to help you learn if postgraduate study is right for you.

To explore any of these options and more, speak to our Careers and Enterprise team. They'll help you plan your next steps and offer useful advice and guidance. Visit the Careers Hub in the Lady Hale Building on Peel Park campus to talk to the team directly or book an appointment with an adviser.
