The University of Salford is a public university in Salford, Greater Manchester, England, 1 mile west of Manchester city centre.

The University of Salford formed from a merger of technical colleges and institutes, created to educate and train a growing workforce. With a past entrenched in industry, we have continued to build on our principles of getting students work-ready.

Our university community encompasses over 23,000 students, 2500 staff and 170,000 alumni who come to study, teach and research here from all around the world.

Our thriving industry-focused research is cutting edge, rising to the challenges and opportunities of the fourth industrial revolution.

As ‘thinking machines’ continue to replace human tasks and jobs, and smart cities become a reality, our focus for the next few years is to strengthen our position specifically in robotics, digital and smart living. We already have a solid base on which to build from, as these three areas cut across everything that we already do.
