University of Salford

Salford | North West England

Creative City Campus

Ucas code: S03

At the University of Salford, industry is embedded in everything we do. Many of our courses are developed with industry wrapped around them. This enhances our student experience and gives our graduates a competitive edge. Our state-of-the-art facilities (which include an Energy House, acoustics lab, media studios and much more) are used by industry, researchers and students alike. We are the only university with a campus at MediaCityUK, sitting right next to neighbours such as ITV and the BBC at the heart of the largest revolution in digital arts and technology in the UK.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
