International Opportunities: our partnerships

Globe

We are partners with institutions across the globe, giving current students, students from abroad and our members of staff the opportunity to take part in one of our schemes. 

International Exchange partnerships

If you're an incoming student (currently studying outside of the UK), and your institution is listed below, you'll be eligible to apply to study with us on the International Exchange scheme, depending on your current programme of study.

Similarly, if you're an outgoing student, check the partnerships we have with universities abroad to see where you could study. Some institutions will only accept students from a certain school or course, so make sure you consider all of the options available.

Erasmus+ partnerships

For Salford students currently studying with us, if you're looking to study or work abroad as part of your degree, take a look at the universities we currently hold an agreement with. Your eligibility to study at one of the institutions listed depends on your current course and/or your subject area, so make sure you check your options carefully.

If you're a student applying to study with us through the Erasmus+ scheme, there are many universities we currently have a partnership with - check to see if yours is listed below. You'll also need to make sure you're currently studying on the course or subject that we accept from your institution.

Staff are also welcome to apply for the Erasmus+ programme. You can see a list of eligible institutions and the subject area they accept applications for below.

Please note that there may be some changes in the overall range of partnerships on offer as a result of Brexit.
