What to expect

This event will offer you the chance to attend a number of sessions designed to support you starting with us in September. Join us for a welcome talk where you can find out about life at the University of Salford, followed by a Q&A with one of our current Postgraduate students. You will then have the chance to attend a session with our library team about the support and services they offer, followed by a session on what to do once you have completed your studies. 

There will also be a number of optional sessions offering you the chance to take a tour of the campus, take a look around our John Lester/Eddie Colman accommodation site and find out more about fees and funding.

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! Choosing a university is a big decision, so we’d absolutely encourage anyone who is supporting you to get involved and join you.

Do you have support for students with a disability?

You can let us know about your access requirements when you book onto our Open Days. We’ll then work with you to do everything we can to support you. You will also be able to have a one-to-one appointment with our disability and wellbeing team on the day. 

If you would like to check our campus for its accessibility, we have worked closely with AccessAble (the leading provider of access information for disabled people in the UK) to produce an assessment of our campus and facilities. This work has provided detailed information about our access; find out more about their assessment of our campus and facilities.
