Salford Business School will be running dedicated study sessions on 18 August to help you move into higher education. These will be both serious and fun and are designed so you can start to prepare for moving on to University.

We will hold these sessions on campus following COVID-safe guidelines. If you are unable to visit us in Salford, sessions will also be streamed live online and will be recorded for you to follow afterwards.

Our friendly staff, besides providing their expert knowledge, will be happy to talk about any other aspect of the University experience that you might have questions about.

You’ll also have the chance to talk with current students about their experience, with graduates about their job success and get their hints and tips about University life.

Not applied to Salford? You're welcome to join us too.

Lunch will be provided and refreshments will be available throughout the day.

You’re welcome to bring a parent or supporter but, for safety and distancing, we ask you to limit this to one person.

Important information - safety on campus

Group numbers

Your group will consist of your tutor, a current student and up to 20 visitors. 

On campus

We have put measures in place across our campus to ensure the safety of you, your guest and our students and staff. These include one-way walking routes in our buildings, hand sanitisation points near building entrances, regular cleaning of high-touch points and plenty of signage reminding everyone of the guidelines.

Face coverings

Although restrictions are easing we would strongly encourage you and your guest to please wear a mask whenever you are moving around – inside or outside – unless you are exempt for health reasons. This helps us to keep everyone safe.

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms

If you have booked a place on one of our study sessions but develop Covid-19 symptoms before you are due to visit, please stay at home and do not visit our campus. Covid-19 symptoms include a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.


Getting here / where to park

Salford Crescent train station is on campus and there are several bus stops on Salford Crescent. For more info on how to find us, have a look at our travel page.

If you’re joining us by car, free parking is available for you in our Irwell Place car park. This is on Salford Crescent, on the right hand side as you head towards Manchester. It is just over the road from the Peel Park campus where you will spend your day. There is no need to pay-and-display or pay via the app, it’s free for your visit.


Check-in location

When you arrive on campus please head to Chapman Square, just outside Chapman building (number 10 on our campus map). There will be a check-in desk set up inside the gazebo where you will be greeted by members of our recruitment team. Your study sessions will be held in Chapman building.

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! We recognise that choosing a university is a big decision, so we'd encourage you to bring a guest. However, we will be social distancing during the event and would ask that you limit your guests to just one person on this occasion. 

We are running a session specially for parents and supporters at 1pm to find out about supporting you in your decision and to ask their own questions. Check out the timetable above.

Will there be somewhere to get refreshments?

Yes, we'll give you a voucher to buy lunchtime snacks and drinks. You'll also be able to get hot and cold drinks throughout the day and our student shop will be open for you to buy anything else you need.    

Do you have support for students with a disability?

What safety measures have been put in place for campus tours?

  • It is our priority to ensure the safety of all of our visitors, students, and staff. We are following the Government and Public Health England's advice and guidance on Covid-19 to make sure that our campus is a safe and secure environment for all.
