  • Don’t panic The university's experienced team is ready to help. Call them on 0333 733 4309.

  • Visit There’s no better way to find out what a university is like than visiting in person. If the University of Salford offers you a place, you’ll be invited to a Clearing visit day or campus tour. This is the perfect opportunity to explore their facilities and find out more about your course.
