Students in a lecture theatre

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.

We have a long history of welcoming Cypriot students to our campus, which is within easy reach of Cyprus. You can fly direct from Paphos, or you can depart from Larnaca and reach us via other European hub airports. Our campus is easy to get to from Manchester International Airport by taxi or public transport.

Salford and Manchester has a thriving Cypriot community which means that there are also many options for Cypriot and Mediterranean food options in Manchester such as Kosmos Tavernas and Rozafa’s.
