Salford and Nigeria
At the University of Salford, we have a long history of welcoming international students from all over the world. Nigeria is no exception – we have a vibrant community of over 400 Nigerian students studying across our campuses. We travel to Nigeria regularly to visit schools, universities and exhibitions. We also have links with scholarship bodies like the PTDF, NDDC, Commonwealth and the Commonwealth Shared Fund.
Our courses are designed to be industry focused and many offer students opportunities to go on placement or get work experience.
Our scholarship scheme, the Salford International Excellence Award, is worth up to £5000. We also offer guaranteed scholarships for high achieving students, worth £3,500 for courses in computing, science and engineering, or £2,500 for courses in business, environment and the built environment.
Some of our popular subject areas include petroleum and gas engineering, gas engineering management, advanced control systems, managing innovation and IT, digital business, construction management, nursing studies (top up), law, accounting and finance, health and global environment, and architecture.

We encourage Nigerian students to apply for the super priority visa (SPV) service due to the recent instability of the Nigerian Naira. The SPV service provides a fast track service for Nigerian students applying for either a visit visa or a Tier 4 student visa.
