The University of Salford is a campus university based in Salford, Greater Manchester, England with approximately 20,000 registered students. The main campus is less than a mile and a half (three kilometres) from Manchester city centre.

Salford has excellent transport links into the city, with a railway station on campus and a regular bus service. It's only a couple of minutes drive from the motorway network and less than twenty minutes from Manchester International Airport. It is situated in 60 acres of parkland on the banks of the River Irwell.

As one of the first universities to offer 'sandwich' degrees, the University of Salford has a history of giving students job-related skills and experience. And many of the programs have been designed in conjunction with employers - giving students a head start when it comes to graduation. Salford is at the forefront of developing the blended learning approach. Increasing demands on students to juggle study and work is the reason why they have introduced systems that blend traditional teaching methods with the convenience of online study and workplace learning.

The school combines academic and vocational excellence in the areas of teaching, research and enterprise and is a resource for businesses regionally, nationally and internationally.
