Salford students in Chinatown

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.
