Due to our strong relationships with industry, the University of Salford has secured a range of research and training opportunities with leading companies and research institutes.

For those interested in pursuing a career in the biosciences, there are several placement opportunities available at leading companies including the North West Lung Centre, Protein Technologies Ltd and the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute. Environmental science students may have the option to work directly with organisations such as DEFRA and the Environment Agency, and previous students studying biomedicine and biology courses have benefited from placement opportunities at University Hospital of South Manchester, Unilever, Manchester Royal Infirmary, Roche and Hope Hospital (to name a few!)

Experiences like these offer significant career progression and will prepare you to take a leading role within the scientific community.
