In memory of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Categories: University Campus

The University of Salford would like to express our deep sadness at the passing of our former Chancellor, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. HRH Prince Philip served as the first University Chancellor from 1967-1991.


The Chancellor is the ceremonial head of the University and plays an important ambassadorial role, presiding over the University’s graduation ceremonies and acting as an advocate for its achievements.

During his time as Chancellor Prince Philip took an active part in the life of the University being a frequent visitor to campus and relishing the opportunity to talk with our students. 

A collection of images below show some of the many occasions Prince Philip visited the University of Salford.
