University of Salford

The University of Salford’s roots trace back to the time of the great Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, with a strong history of advanced technology and innovation. Its teaching and research programmes have evolved constantly in response to the needs of industry, commerce and education. Today, the University is internationally recognised as one of the most innovative and business-engaged institutions in the UK. Health, energy, media and the built environment  are leading subject areas for the University.  Our campus at MediaCityUK offers unparalleled facilities, and with the BBC, ITV and more than 200 digital companies located there, it is at the centre of the UK’s digital industry. In addition to its exceptional facilities at MediaCityUK, the University has other truly unique resources, such as its Energy House, the Centre for Virtual Environments and Future Media, the Clinical Simulation Suite and its Gait Analysis Laboratory.
