Studying at the University of Salford is an exciting experience, and our industry-focused courses prepare you for success. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their field, and you will put your learning into practice in real-world settings, such as through placements, live projects, field trips, or hearing from guest speakers.

The university welcomes a large number of Indian students each year who become part of our vibrant community. South Asian culture is represented well across this region - specialty shops, restaurants, places of worship and cultural events can be found easily across Manchester and Salford. For example, The famous curry mile has many great Indian restaurants, takeaways, and shops that sell Asian food.

our alumni community

When you graduate from Salford, you will join a community of over 200,000 alumni worldwide, including India who make a positive impact in their communities. We will offer you lifelong careers advice and help provide networking opportunities, events and mentorship programmes. 

Many of our Indian graduates go on to achieve remarkable success, for example, Dr. Byrana Suresh who was the chancellor of the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology and is a founding director. Or Dr. Sukumar Devotta who was a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2007 as part of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
