At the University of Salford we believe that everyone has the right to a good education.
We are committed to providing opportunities for all those with the potential to succeed in higher education.
If you have been out of education for a while, want to further your career or simply want to study in a field that you’re passionate about, then the Salford Alternative Entry Scheme (SAES) could be for you.
The SAES is a bespoke option for those who are interested in studying an undergraduate degree but may not meet the specific requirements to do so. Perhaps you’re a mature student who has been out of education, or maybe you’re a recent A-Level student who failed to get their expected grades due to mitigating circumstances.
Applicants for the Salford Alternative Entry Scheme are recommended on the basis of their application submitted through UCAS. Those applicants recommended for the scheme will be notified via either the offer through UCAS or via communication from our admissions team.
If you have any questions about your UCAS application please contact the admissions team on firstname.lastname@example.org
APL is used for courses in Business and Law, Health Sciences, Environment & Life Sciences and Arts & Media. Your offer will detail what you need to do next if you are recommended to proceed with this route.
APL allows us to consider students who may not have the traditional entry criteria but do have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully. Assessment may consider employer references, previous coursework/examinations or a portfolio of your work.
If you have any questions about the APL route, please contact Ruth Potts at email@example.com.
The MSAP-UK test is used for courses in Nursing, Midwifery, Social Work & Social Sciences, Computing, Science & Engineering (some courses in CSE require a preliminary maths test), and the Built Environment. Your offer will detail what you need to do next if you are recommended to proceed with this route.
The MSAP-UK test is a combination of two of the three modules listed below. The modules are assigned to each course based on recommendations made by academic staff at the University of Salford. Please see the tables below in the 'Module Breakdown by course' section to find out which modules you will need to take.
A brief description of the test modules can be seen below. You can find out more and book your test by visiting the MSAP-UK website. You should only book onto the test once you have received instructions in your offer from Salford.
The test (MSAP-UK) is administered by our partners, ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research).
This module involves two writing tasks. The responses will be assessed on:
There are 35 questions in multiple-choice format with four responses to choose from. There is only one correct response. The questions focus on your understanding of ideas in language. Some questions will ask candidates to identify the main idea in a passage, or interpret specific words and phrases.
