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
