University of SalfordUniversity of Salford
The University of Salford is home to a diverse community of more than 3,400 postgraduate students, working with internationally-renowned academics and contributing to research projects that are recognised both nationally and across the world.
We strongly believe in research that has a real-world focus and makes a difference to businesses and communities round the world.
We’re only a mile and a half (3km) from Manchester city centre – so close you can walk. The University is on the doorstep of one of the most exciting cities in the UK and part of the biggest student population in Europe.
From September 2011 the city of Salford will be at the forefront of the media industry in the UK. MediaCityUK is a huge, £500m development that will house six national BBC departments alongside large numbers of smaller, independent, creative businesses.
The University of Salford will be part of this major creative centre. We’re taking over 31,000m2 which will be filled with equipment and learning spaces unrivalled in any other UK university.
Facilities will include digital performance labs, HD TV studios and post- production suites where 1,600 students and researchers will be located right alongside the BBC.
