Your next steps

To confirm your place on your course, you need to complete all of the below actions. If you applied using an agent, you can ask them to guide you through your next steps:

  • 1) Accept your offer: if you have decided you want to study with us, you should go UCAS track and accept your offer. Or if you applied directly, accept your offer on the Applicant Portal.
  • 2) Meet all your offer conditions (including paying your deposit) before the deadline: If your offer is ‘conditional’, you should meet all of your conditions by the specified deadline before we can confirm your place on your chosen course.

Your conditions could include providing your academic transcripts, proof of English language, and your passport/other documents.

Once you have provided all of these, the final step in meeting your conditions is to pay your deposit or provide proof of sponsorship.

You should check your offer letter to find out what conditions you need to meet and by when.

  • 3) Check your course start date: you can find details of when you need to be on campus for your induction on our deadlines page. Make sure you plan to arrive on campus in time for this date.
  • 4) Book your accommodation: it is your responsibility to find and secure accommodation before you arrive at Salford. Find out more about accommodation further down this page.
  • 5) Prepare to apply for your visa - you will need to get your CAS first before you can apply for your visa. Find out more about how to get your CAS and visa.
