91% of students who complete UniSkills say it changes the way they approach their studies.

We know that you may have been out of study for a while, and after everything that’s happened this year we want to help you get ahead. Starting university is an exciting time, but the step up to University level study can also be challenging if you have not been to university before, or if you are new to the higher education system in the UK.

UniSkills introduces the academic expectations of studying at the University of Salford, so that you feel ready and confident to achieve your degree. The course is designed to develop your study, research and digital skills through interactive and engaging eLearning content.

UniSkills Assessments

Your tutors may direct you to complete the UniSkills assessments as part of your programme. If this is the case, you will be given instructions once you begin studying with us. We recommend taking notes on the content to help you when taking the assessments, although you can revisit the eLearning at any time.
