Service Update (COVID-19)​​​​​​​ 2021

We are now offering a mixture of face to face and online appointments, so the choice is yours. Your safety on campus is our number one priority which means that in some areas face coverings are mandatory as they are required by the relevant risk assessment. We encourage you to wear a face covering when attending an appointment in person, if you are able to do so. Please read our guide for more information: Stay safe | University of Salford

Our appointments are still available to book and will be delivered by telephone or over Microsoft Teams. Live masterclasses are currently being delivered live on Collaborate.

Our phone lines and email are open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Please continue to check for up-to-date information regarding the University's response to COVID 19.
