our alumni community

When you graduate from Salford, you will join a global community of over 180,000 alumni making a positive impact in their communities. We will connect you with this community to provide networking opportunities, events and mentorship programmes. You can also get lifelong careers advice from us.

Our graduates from Saudi Arabia are going on to achieve impressive results. For example, Dr. Bandar Alosaimi recently won the Social Impact Award at Study UK for establishing COVIDAT which translated scientific information during the pandemic into Arabic to avoid the spread of misinformation and misconceptions among people.
