University can be a little different to what you're used to, which is why we've developed StartSmart, an exclusive online space created especially for new students starting at Salford.

Helping you to start smart

You'll find loads of useful information on our StartSmart platform to help you prepare for and settle in to university life. As you go through the content, you'll find:

  • Videos giving you the inside scoop on life at Salford
  • Practical tips on how best to settle in when you arrive
  • Advice and guidance from our expert support teams on topics such as wellbeing and managing your money
  • Valuable insights from current students

When visiting StartSmart you'll be asked to create an account to view some of the content. This enables you to personalise your profile, save posts and events you’re interested in, and view additional content to support your start to university life.

Events and activities

A variety of Welcome activities and events will take place from 8 - 19 January. You'll have the chance to meet new people and learn more about Salford from different teams across the University.
