Applicant Support Sessions
We know that in the current situation, you can’t visit us on campus as you may have planned, or listen to a talk at your school or college. It is very important to us that you still have access to all the key information to make an informed decision, so here, you can access a range of presentations and online Q&A sessions to help introduce you to some of the key topics around going to university.
Alongside the events and presentations listed on this page you can also chat directly to our current students if you want to find out what it’s really like studying at the University of Salford.
If you work in a school or college and would like us to present the content live with a follow up Q&A session, please do get in touch on email@example.com.
We really miss visiting schools and colleges across the country, so we’re holding weekly 5pm support sessions for any students wanting to find out more about the options open to them.
Perhaps you're in your first year of college and already thinking what you might do next, or you might be in your final year and have only recently started considering university as an option. As well as member of the Recruitment Team, we’ll have Student Ambassadors online to talk about their own experiences and they’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have?
Parents and supporters are more than welcome to join the sessions if they’d like to find out more about your journey to higher education too – be it this year, next or a way off in the future yet.
There’s no need to book, just CLICK HERE at 5pm on the date of your chosen session – the topics are listed below and vary by date, they are repeated every couple of weeks.
*Please note that although the hyperlinks are live, there won’t be any visible content until 4:45pm on the session dates. We do have pre-recorded sessions for you to watch in the meantime.
Making the most of virtual events
We really miss visiting schools and colleges across the country to chat with students face to face; it's just not the same online for any of us! However, virtual events can open up a world of opportunity and this session looks at how you can really make the most of all the different types of events on offer.
Late Applications & UCAS Extra
Perhaps you didn't initially think university was for you, or your plans have changed - it's not too late to apply for 2021 entry! Join us to find out more about the options open to you. This session will also look at how UCAS Extra works for those students that have already applied but don't receive any offers by March or haven’t received an offer that they wish to accept.
Thinking about University...?
This session is aimed at anyone considering university for 2022 entry or beyond and gives a brief introduction to how to choose a course and the application process. We'll have student ambassadors on hand to talk about their decision-making process and information for mature students returning to education.
Please note, whilst anyone thinking of 2021 entry is welcome to join this, you may find our "Late Applications" session more beneficial.

Overview of postgraduate study
If you are looking to advance your career or have your sights set on a particular job, a postgraduate qualification can give you the extra experience and knowledge to excel. We cover what a postgraduate qualification can offer, the differences to undergraduate study and what being a postgraduate student at the University of Salford is really like.
Applying for postgraduate study
This presentation covers every step of the application process, highlighting how it differs from undergraduate applications. We also look at what a personal statement should highlight and how you can use the direct application to your benefit.
Postgraduate fees and finance
Over the past few years the amount of funding widely available for students wishing to study at postgraduate level has dramatically increased. We take you through how to apply for funding and how the repayment scheme works alongside your undergraduate student loans.
