A carefully curated combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials make up the University of Salford’s taught postgraduate degree schedule. Some courses offer options for part-time, evening and weekend attendance, making the university’s high-quality education available to those who are already employed or have other commitments during the week.
For vocational subjects, modules include practical work placements, networking opportunities, live projects and exhibitions. Work is typically assessed through essays, coursework, exams, practical work and independent research. A dissertation is required for a number of subjects during the final months of study.
The university’s renowned curriculum is supported by the quality of its research output, with each academic department supporting its own fully-equipped research centre.
