Whether you're a budding scientist or engineer, artist or entrepreneur, or want a career in health, the built environment, media, music or law, the University of Salford's courses and extensive links to industry will connect you with a range of rewarding and challenging careers.

With partnerships at organisations across the world, the University of Salford's degrees will give you the skills to help you flourish in a competitive, professional environment.

Many courses offer a year in industry, giving you the chance to work full-time for an employer. You can also gain hands-on experience through work placements, industry masterclasses and live briefs, where students work in teams to deliver solutions for real clients.

Salford and Manchester are full of places just waiting to be discovered. Live music is everywhere, from big-name venues like the O2 Apollo to indie spaces like Soup Kitchen. Top cultural spots include HOME, a centre for art, theatre and film. If you're into food, you can find almost every type of cuisine in cafes or award-winning restaurants. For a night out, the bars, clubs and real ale pubs of the Northern Quarter are waiting to be explored.

Halls of Residence

Living on campus is a great way to immerse yourself in student life. Peel Park Quarter is a thriving student village in the heart of Salford's campus. It offers affordable luxury with rooms that include a desk, chair, double bed and storage. John Lester and Eddie Colman Courts are perfect if you're studying nursing or a health related course. It's a short walk from campus or a free bus ride from MediaCityUK.
