Undergraduate Open Days

Open Day sign on campus

Choosing the right university is a really important decision. You’ll often hear students saying that their university ‘just felt right’ for them - and that’s something you can only experience by visiting in person. 

If you’re an applicant or offer holder hoping to join us in September 2020, look out for more information about our Applicant Visit Days, which we'll send by email, taking place in spring 2020.

Our Open Days this year are taking place on

  • Saturday 20 June
  • Saturday 10 October
  • Saturday 7 November 

Bookings will open around 6 weeks before the events and, in the meantime, you can register your interest now by providing your details below:

Campus tours

Our Open Days are focused on courses starting in September 2021. If you’re interested in starting your study in September 2020, come along to one of our campus tours. They are a great way for you to explore our university and get a feel for our buildings, outdoor space, on-site accommodation and what it's really like to be a student here at Salford.

Our next guided campus tours are on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 February. Click here to book your place.

If you can't make this date, why not take a self-guided tour using this specially created map. The map is designed to help you navigate your way around our Peel Park and Frederick Road campuses at your own pace. Please note, you won't be able to access any of our facilities during self-guided tours.

How to get here

We are located just 2km from Manchester city centre and consequently have great transport links, regardless of whether you’re travelling from across Greater Manchester, across the UK or from further afield. This includes a train station located on campus and several bus routes into the city centre.

Closer to the day, we'll let you know where you need to check-in when you get here and suggest which car park is best to use if you are driving.

If you're planning to visit our MediaCityUK campus, the journey takes approximately 15 minutes by bus from our main campus. You'll be able to use the free shuttle bus service we provide between our main campus and MediaCityUK. The closest car park to our main campus is Irwell Place. 

Please be aware that we do not have any parking available at MediaCityUK, so if you choose to drive here, you will need to pay to park.


Getting around campus

We know being in a new place can be a bit overwhelming, so we’ll point you in the right direction when you book a place on one of our events.

A couple of weeks before the event, we’ll provide you with information on which check-in point to attend when you arrive, to ensure you’re as close to your course session as possible.

If at any point you’re struggling to find your way around while you’re here, our Student Ambassadors (sporting red t-shirts) will be all over campus and are happy to help you get your bearings.

Make yourself at home in our city

If after the Open Day you want to get a feel for the city and its surrounding areas, there are plenty of things to see and do whilst you’re here.

The City of Salford is in the heart of Greater Manchester, with the University of Salford's main campus just 2km from Manchester city centre.

You’ll be just a short walk or bus ride from world-class music, sport, nightlife, food, shopping and culture, and you’ll also be joining one of the largest student communities in Europe, with around 100,000 students in total across Greater Manchester. It’s one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the UK, with people from all backgrounds and countries coming here to live and study.

For detailed information of things to see and do in the cities, go to Visit Salford and Visit Manchester.

We’ve got a lot to boast about, so here’s a quick overview of why we love Salford and Manchester:
