University of Salford
The University of Salford has been developing over 100 years, into a dynamic and cosmopolitan institution with a reputation for real-world teaching and groundbreaking research. A historic tradition of innovative thinking and commercial success means that the university is widely regarded as one of the UK’s most enterprising universities. Teaching programmes are linked to the real world of work, with Salford being one of the first universities to offer ‘sandwich degrees’. Many programmes are designed in conjunction with employers, giving graduates a head start. 3 out of 4 undergraduate programmes offer a placement year giving students a chance to work elsewhere in the UK or overseas.
