Undergraduate Open Days


Choosing the right university is a big decision  and one of the best ways of finding out what's right for you is by going to Open Days and events.

Our next Open Day will take place on 9 October 2021. Register your interest now to hear first when booking opens.

Our location

Situated just 2km from Manchester city centre, we think we have the best of both worlds: plenty of green space around us with the hustle and bustle of the city just a 20-minute walk away. We also have great transport links, with our on-campus train station, Salford Crescent, connecting you to the city centre and beyond.

An update on Covid-19

We are following the Government and Public Health England’s guidance on Covid-19 closely, and as this is an ever-changing situation, we cannot currently say with certainty whether all of our upcoming events will be taking place on campus.

Once you have booked or registered your interest in any of our events, we will email you with updates, so please keep a close eye on your emails.
