Overview

The University of Salford has a rich history stretching back to 1896, but if you thought Salford was all about flat caps, factory smog and Coronation Street ? think again. The future looks bright. In 2011 we'll be joining five major BBC departments, including Sport and Children's, at MediaCityUK only a short distance from the University campus. We'll have 100,000 square feet of space filled with state-of-the-art technology right next to the BBC buildings. All parts of the University will be involved in working with the BBC and other tenants to create job opportunities for graduates, and benefit business and the local community. 83% of our research was judged of international class by the Government's latest Research Assessment Exercise. What's more, 12% was judged to be world-leading ? at the very cutting edge. Not only does Salford's research directly benefit people's everyday lives, but it also means that our teaching and business partnerships benefit as well Just one and a half miles away from Manchester, the University of Salford is right on the doorstep of big-city diversity and fun. Our world-famous graduates include painter LS Lowry, comedian Peter Kay, actors Sir Ben Kingsley and Christopher Eccleston, and former CEO of ASDA, Andy Bond.
