Partner institutions

SBS Postgraduates in Lecture Theatre

If you are studying on a University of Salford programme at a partner college or institution, you are welcome to use our libraries.

There are different types of partner college and partner institution programmes (generally known as collaborative provision). Your College or Institution Tutor can tell you which type you are studying and this will affect the range of information resources and services that you are able to use. If you are still unsure please email
