Explore Podiatry at Salford
Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders, many of which are caused by general health disorders. You will use comprehensive assessment and diagnostic skills to develop patient care pathways for conditions which impact on people's quality of life. Qualified podiatrists find employment in hospitals, GP clinics, in the community, or can set up in private practice. They can work alongside doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and other professionals and are seen as a vital part of the health care team. The University has an on-site Podiatry Clinic and is a lead partner in the UK's first Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics. As a student, you will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, placement opportunities and teaching staff who are experts in their fields.

Explore Life at Salford
From becoming an undergraduate student to on-campus accommodation, we've got you covered. Take a look at the information below to get a feel for all things Salford life.
Campus Life. Big City Buzz.
Study at Salford really is the best of both worlds. Our Peel Park campus is set in 46 square kilometres of lush, green space to enjoy. But we're also just over a mile away from the big city buzz of central Manchester - voted the UK's most liveable city two years running.
Famous for music, culture, sport, art and science, the cities of Manchester and Salford offers an unrivalled student experience where you can balance your studies with world-class culture, exciting events and legendary nightlife.
We know university life isn’t all about studying – sometimes you have to have fun, too – and there are plenty of things to do outside of academia across our campuses.
From joining a club or society, to taking part in a gym class, to meeting up with friends for lunch in Atmosphere bar and café: when you're not working on your next assignment or research project, you can be enjoying the perks of being on campus at the University of Salford.
Living in student accommodation is a great way to get settled into university life and meet new people. We've got some great accommodation options to choose from, including Peel Park Quarter - recently voted one of the best halls of residence in the UK.
Becoming an undergraduate student
Choosing a university is one of the biggest decisions you'll make - and we want to help you make the right one.
