Partner colleges

Students socialising in Maxwell café

We're committed to giving more people access to higher education. We do this through working with further education colleges across the north-west to offer a range of courses where you can study locally with the option of continuing your studies at the University.

The range of courses include degrees and foundation degrees. Foundation degrees are delivered at the partner college, after which you have the opportunity to apply to top up your study to degree level at the University. Degree programmes are mainly offered by studying the first year at the partner college and then moving to the University for the remaining years.

Studying at a partner college

To ensure you have the maximum chance of success while studying at a partner college, we provide a dedicated programme of support throughout your studies. This includes talks by University academic staff to students at partner colleges and organised visits to the University campus to attend events relevant to your programme of study, such as guest lectures and masterclasses.

As a partner college student, you are automatically a student here at Salford too and therefore have access to certain University facilities and resources whilst you study.
