Off campus study

A student studies at home.

However you're studying, you have access to 1,000s of high quality resources, helping to keep your studies and research on track.

Please note: Some services are restricted to UK-based, registered Salford students in order to comply with certain licensing restrictions. If you're studying on a University of Salford programme at a partner college, see our information for Partner students.
