The University of Salford was established in 1967 to equip people with the knowledge and skills they needed to succeed in the emerging industries of their time. We were one of the first UK institutions to pioneer ‘sandwich’ courses that gave our students practical, work-based experience alongside traditional academic learning.
Today, we’re closer to industry than ever, with more links to small and medium-sized enterprises than any other university in Greater Manchester (Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey 2015/16). We also count international businesses such as Siemens and Jaguar Land Rover among our partners. We build strong relationships with businesses to create courses that enable our graduates to take on the challenges of today’s working world.
