The University’s Vision
“By pioneering exceptional industry partnerships we will lead the way in real world experiences preparing students for life.”
At the University of Salford we are proud of our place in the world. Situated in the heart of the vibrant Greater Manchester conurbation, we play a significant role in the community. While our heart is anchored in the North West, we have a powerful global reach. Our University is our people; our authenticity and strong sense of place appeals to students of all ages and all backgrounds and we focus on equipping them for the world of work. Together we transform lives.
We have now reached a pivotal moment here at the University, with the ever-changing higher education landscape, both at home and overseas, requiring a new approach to traditional and emerging challenges in order that we continue to thrive in an increasingly competitive world.
In our work to realize this vision we are revamping our approach to student recruitment, employability, enterprise, curriculum development and research. Underpinning the vision is the creation of four brand new ‘Industry Collaboration Zones’ which will act as a focus for collaboration within the University and with partners, in particular industry sectors. This is a bold departure from traditional structures and models of learning and will provide an outstanding experience for our staff, students and partners alike.
