The University of Salford is an ambitious and progressive institution in the Greater Manchester area. It offers a high-quality programme of postgraduate and research degree courses that furthers understanding in key areas of global research, and leads graduates into challenging and rewarding careers in science, healthcare, law, business, engineering, the built environment, media, music and the arts.
Students will join a postgraduate community of more than 3,000 students from over 150 countries worldwide, who contribute to the university’s domestic and internationally-recognised research groups. There are over 40,000 postgraduate students in the lively and multicultural Greater Manchester area.
There are four academic schools at the University of Salford: the School of Arts, Media and Creative Technology; the School of Health and Society; Salford Business School, and the School of Science, Engineering and Environment. These departments operate across three campuses with industry-standard facilities and cutting-edge equipment.
The university invests heavily in its infrastructure and recently completed the £55 million New Adelphi Building – a flagship centre for music, art, architecture and design. Healthcare facilities include a bespoke sports injury clinic, human performance laboratory and patient simulation suite. Journalism students enjoy access to two HD TV studios, as well as a radio studio and newsroom at the MediaCityUK campus, right next to the BBC and ITV.
Postgraduate students benefit from studying in a research-driven and employment-focused environment that enhances long term career prospects and connects graduates with the university’s network of industry associates and professional alumni.
University of Salford Students on Postgraduate Search say:
“Happy to finally be studying a subject I am interested in, as well as being more involved with my peers with regards to work.”
“So good I came back for a masters!”
“It's my second home, always on campus.”
Both taught and research postgraduate degrees are available at the University of Salford, with full-time, part-time and distance learning options. The courses aim to develop knowledge and skills through practical placements and academic study. Students will be assessed through essays, exams, online tests, portfolio work, coursework and design projects, depending on the specific area of study.
Many of the courses also require a dissertation submission specialising in a particular subject area.
For research students, there are well-equipped research centres where students will have access to training facilities and support from leading supervisors.
