Since our beginnings as the Salford Royal Technical Institute in 1896, we have been industry focused and daring, developing the skills of working people for nearly 125 years.
Our location sets us apart and continues to drive our strong industry links. Our campus is just 2km from Manchester with easy transport routes and opportunities to connect with industry in an internationally recognised city home to many growing industries, such as digital, sports business and the built environment.
We are supporting many growing areas with partnerships with organisations of all types and sizes. We’re proud to have more partnerships with SMEs than any other Greater Manchester university.
We are also the only university with a MediaCityUK campus, sitting right next to neighbours such as ITV and the BBC.
