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.

Love your life at Salford
Salford is part of Greater Manchester, a thriving, diverse city-region in the north-west of England. Our main campus is just 2km from Manchester city centre, so our students get to enjoy the history, culture, nightlife and restaurants of two fantastic cities.
Take a tour in the video below - from our university to Manchester city centre and beyond - discovering all the best spots our neighbourhood has to offer along the way.
Get a scholarship
As an offer holder, you may be eligible for one of our scholarships to get a discount on your tuition fees. We have a range of automatic merit-based scholarships and if you're eligible for one of these, it will be included in your offer letter. So remember to check your offer letter carefully.
Find out more by clicking the link below.
Paying your tuition fees
If you are a self-funded student, you must pay a deposit of £5,500 to confirm your place on your course. The deposit will be deducted from the tuition fee amount for the year.
During registration (or before), you will need to arrange payment of your tuition fees. Watch the video and follow the links below to discover exactly how to pay your tuition fees.
It is your responsibility to book your accommodation before you arrive in Salford. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment as there is a shortage of both student and private accommodation in Greater Manchester this year, partly due to Greater Manchester having one of the largest student populations in Europe.
Living in student accommodation is a great way to meet new people and enjoy socialising with our friendly, vibrant community.
We’ve got some great accommodation options to choose from, including Peel Park Quarter - which was recently voted the second-best halls of residence in the UK by Student Hut. We also have our popular John Lester and Eddie Colman Courts nearer to our Frederick Road campus which have common rooms and even a free gym.
Would you prefer to live off-campus? We recommend using Manchester Student Homes to help you find accredited accommodation. You can also use websites like Spareroom, Rightmove and Zoopla, and you should look at accommodation options all across Greater Manchester and not just Salford, as we do have good transport links to help you travel to campus.

LIFE AT SALFORD
Life on campus
On campus, there's lots to get involved in: from joining a society, to exploring our sports centre and fitness classes, to relaxing after a day of lectures in our Students' Union. We also have beautiful green spaces for you to relax, with Peel Park situated right next to our main campus.
In the city
When you're not in lectures or spending time with friends on campus, heading into Manchester city centre is a great option. We're just a 20-minute walk from Spinningfields, but with our on-campus train station (Salford Crescent), you can be at the heart of the city within minutes. The 50 bus is also free to students, meaning you can take advantage of our campus at MediaCity and discover the beautiful views of the Quays.
Salford Students' Union
Our Students' Union based in University House is the place to go for all your student queries once you're on campus. Home to askUS, in here you'll also find our student radio station Shock Radio, Atmosphere, and our common room.
Our sports centre has a swimming pool, sauna and spa, a gym, a six-court sports hall, fitness suites, fitness classes, external pitches and changing facilities. Perfect for working out in the morning, lunchtime, evening - whatever time of day suits you.
