Get Ready


Apply for student finance

Before you can register for each year of your course, you need to either have confirmation of your tuition fee loan from Student Finance, have confirmation of sponsorship or set up a payment plan if you are self-funding your tuition costs.

It’s really important that you have your funding arrangements in place as soon as possible – find out more.


Register online

You must register online before your course starts. It's really important you complete this promptly and well before start of term. If you don't, you won't be on our records as a registered student and you won't be able to start your course. Find out more about how you can register and what the process involves.


Sort your accommodation

One big decision you’ll need to make is where you’re going to stay while studying at Salford.

We have great accommodation available on campus at both the Peel Park Quarter, and the John Lester and Eddie Coleman sites. We also work with Manchester Student Homes to find other places to live across the city – find out more and book your place.

Whether you’ve come straight from school or college, or are returning to study after some time out, get ahead with the skills you’ll need at university. Our ‘Get Going’ guide includes information on sorting out your IT accounts, using the library and studying at university – find out more here.


Check your academic induction timetable

Your academic induction timetable lets you know about additional activities that are happening in the first few weeks of your course - check it out now to make sure you don't miss out! You will meet your new tutors, meet friends on your course and find out important information you need while studying. You must attend these sessions.


Disability & Learner Support

Studying on campus? Plan your journey to the university

We have great public transport links, with lots of different options for you to get to and from university. Our main campus is just over a mile from Manchester city centre, which is only a five-minute journey by bus.
