The Building Magazine

If you're local to Manchester, take a walk around the city and look at the developments taking place, the contractors and clients involved in delivering the projects, and take note of the information on the site hoardings. Billboards on the hoardings contain a wealth of insightful information such as proposed scheme details, the construction, health & safety information, and the impact the construction will have on the community.

We'd encourage all prospective students to gain some experience prior to starting university. Perhaps a day work-shadowing a professional in practice to better understand the role they play and the varying professionals they converse with in their day-to-day activity.

The latest industry news on sites such as Construction Enquirer 

Create a profile on LinkedIn 

Have a search for the top construction industry contractors and consultants, and then search these company websites. You can find out about the type of company you want to work for, the role you want to go into, and even perhaps identify and apply for any vacancies.

Watch

Leading contractors and consultants put plenty of videos on YouTube about the different roles they offer, and what people in these roles do on a day to day basis. You can find the leading companies with the steps in the ‘Browse’ section.

Search for RICS and CIOB, these are just come of the leading professional bodies in the construction industry and offer a wealth of video, training, and broader knowledge content. You can also join as a student member.

Recommend

If you're local to Manchester, take a walk around the city and look at the developments taking place, the contractors and clients involved in delivering the projects, and take note of the information on the site hoardings. Billboards on the hoardings contain a wealth of insightful information such as proposed scheme details, the construction, health & safety information, and the impact the construction will have on the community. If you’re not local to Manchester, have a look around where you live at all construction works currently going on.

We'd encourage all prospective students to gain some experience prior to starting university. Perhaps a day work-shadowing a professional in practice to better understand the role they play and the varying professionals they converse with in their day-to-day activity.

Receiving your results

We know that most of you will be receiving your results on Thursday 15 August and, for the majority of qualifications, these will be sent directly to us. This isn't the case for all qualifications however, so please choose your qualification from the list below to see if there's anything you'll need to do on results day.

Choose your qualification

I’m studying A-levels, a BTEC or an Access course

We receive your results automatically for these qualifications via UCAS and you will be able to see our decision on your UCAS Applicant Hub on Thursday 15 August, from 08:00 onwards.

If your place is confirmed, you will receive a text message and an email on Thursday 15 August. Once this is shown as confirmed on UCAS Applicant Hub, you don’t need to do anything more. Please note that, for some qualifications, we may receive your results earlier and so you may see an update on the UCAS Applicant Hub before this date. However, we will send out all confirmation messages on Thursday 15 August.

If you don't hear from us, and would like to check your situation, please call us on +44 0300 555 5030. Our phone lines will be very busy on Thursday 15 August, so if your enquiry isn’t urgent, it might be easier to contact us on a different day.

I'm studying other qualifications

The most common qualifications for university entry are A-levels, BTECs and Access courses, and we will automatically receive your results for these via UCAS. If you’re studying something else, please see the UCAS website for a full list of qualifications that are received through UCAS and sent directly to universities.

If the qualifications you are studying are not on the UCAS list, you will need to send your results through to us once you receive them. Please send them as soon as possible as the last date we can receive these is 6 September.

You can keep an eye on the progress of your application on the UCAS Applicant Hub. To check if we have received your qualifications, please call us on +44 0300 555 5030.

I'm waiting for GCSE results too

We don’t automatically receive your GCSE results, so you must send these to us when you receive them.

GCSE results will be released on Thursday 22 August. Just before this date, we will send you an email detailing the address you must send your results to by 7 September, so please keep them safe.

Once you have sent your qualifications, keep your eye on the UCAS Applicant Hub to check the progress of your application. We will also send you an email when everything has been confirmed.

If you don't receive any update from us and would like to check your situation, please call us on +44 0300 555 5030.

My offer is unconditional

Great news, you don’t need to do anything else! Just kick back, relax and enjoy your summer!

 

What if my results aren't what I expect?

Once we receive your results, we’ll make an assessment on whether you’ve achieved the grades that formed the conditions of your offer. If you do, we’ll confirm your place as soon as we can.

If you do not meet these conditions, we will take your full application into consideration, including any contextual information we might have – such as your interview performance or portfolio – before we make a decision on whether your place is confirmed. All applicants will be considered individually in this regard.

Alternatively, we may make you an offer to study a different course that we think is a more suitable option, such as a course with a Foundation Year.

In some situations, we may not be able to confirm your place, and, in this scenario, your application will be rejected.

Timetables and term dates

We know that you’ll be keen to see your timetable for your first year, and although this won’t be available until early September, we can give you some general information about what to expect.

We divide the academic year into three terms, known as trimesters, which are 14 weeks long including vacation periods. Click the link below to see an overview of the 2024/25 academic year, including a breakdown of each trimester. Please bear in mind that the majority of courses do not have teaching during trimester three. However, if you’re on an accelerated course, a course with a mid-year start, or a course aligned to a healthcare profession, you will be taught during this period.

Learn more about the academic year by week 2024/25.

Welcome week

Welcome Week starts on Monday 11 September, and we’ve put together a packed week of activities to help you get settled in, meet your teaching staff, learn more about your course, make friends, and have a fun-filled start to life at the University of Salford.

There’ll be essential induction activities to introduce you to your course, tutors and support staff, and the opportunity to meet other students on your course.

Arriving and settling in

Once you’ve got your results and your place at Salford has been confirmed, you can start getting your kit ready and preparing to move.

If you are staying in Peel Park Quarter or John Lester and Eddie Colman Courts, our accommodation partner, Campus Living Villages, will email you later in the summer inviting you to book your time of arrival - there will be options to arrive outside of normal working hours, so no matter how far you’re travelling from, you’ll be able to move in at a time that suits you.

We want to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, since lots of students will be arriving on campus, so please do confirm your arrival and read the guidance CLV will send to you carefully.

If you still haven't booked a room and are planning to move for university, please contact our askUS team on +44 (0)161 295 0023 (open from 8am-6pm Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm on Friday).

If you have chosen to stay in other student accommodation, you will be contacted regarding your move in options by your accommodation provider. For alternative accommodation options we recommend Manchester Student Homes, a free, university-run housing service for students. They offer free, independent housing advice and only advertise properties from accredited landlords who have signed up to their Code of Standards.

Getting Support

Moving to university is exciting, but it can be a stressful time too. There is support available to you at the University of Salford whenever you need it. For any issues that you might be dealing with, you will have access to our dedicated support service, askUS.

If you would like to discuss any additional support you may need ahead of joining university, whether it's for a disability, your wellbeing or learner support, please call askUS on +44 (0)161 295 0023 or find more information on the askUS page.

We also have a peer support service called Rafiki, which is led by our students. If you experience any problems whilst studying at the University, they are here to listen and can also signpost you to other support services, both on and off campus. Rafiki is a drop-in service, so you don’t need to make an appointment.

Student Minds

Student Minds is the UK's student mental health charity. They have established a resource called Transitions to guide you through the process of moving and settling in to life at university.

University of Salford Students' Union

Open Day 2020 Students' Union Image
