New to Salford? Our Get Ready to Learn at the University of Salford resources will give you a great introduction to studying at Salford.

We know that you may have been out of study for a while, and after everything that's happened this year we want to help you get ahead. Starting university is an exciting time, but the step up to university level study can also be challenging if you have not been to university before, or if you are new to the higher education system in the UK.

Our 'Get ready to learn at the University of Salford' content introduces the academic expectations of studying at university, so that you feel ready and confident to achieve your degree.

You may find it helpful to take notes on the content. It's a good habit to get into and will give you something to refer back to.
