Most helpful review

UOS is a wonderful institution with some seriously tenured lecturers. I started at the university undertaking a foundation year which lead me down the path of organic chemistry - with the help of my peers and my lecturers, I am now about to complete my bachelors and begin a masters. For chemistry, the university is well equipped with large scale laboratory spaces sporting modern equipment and a vast array of reagents. The staff at the university have always been friendly and willing to help out if I had any questions. My lecturers in particular have gone miles beyond what you would expect and for that reason my experience here has been of the utmost quality!

The university severely lacks organisation and communication. They appear to be too busy advertising themselves on social media instead of providing students with relevant information. Everything is last minute, some departments don't even provide a personal timetable so students are left to essentially make their own. Tutors are extremely bad at communicating with students and many are clearly lacking teaching qualities. If I could go back in time and advise myself to study elsewhere I certainly would

I regret doing my post graduate course here. There is too much emphasis on group work (blind leading the blind exercises) and regular presentations. There is no consideration for people that may hate this way of learning. This caused myself a lot of stress. I just wanted to learn and have no aspirations to be lecturing and standing up infront of other people and being interrogated. The practical sessions where useless. I get the impression they just want to push you through the course and don't care about if it's a good experience at all. Final exam was nothing resembling the mock exams and important questions on subjects that had not even been discussed. Waste of time revising all the material from the lectures because the exam out to throw you.

Its a shame you can't give a rating on this review for poor academic staff. Pros of the uni. Good campuses Library has great study areas Media city campus Shuttle bus Gym Cheaper tuition fees Poor Tuition was very limited. I experienced a poor supervisor that offered very little help (and was not a subject matter expert in my master's which apparently doesn't matter) Very poor disregard for student well-being. While my experiences were mixed I know @ handful of others who had a good experience at this uni but that was due to supportive academic staff and I knew others who experienced what I experienced. I'd advise anyone to thinking about coming here to fully research the quality of the education offered as there are better alternatives.

As before university is nothing more than a scam these days. If you must go, Salford is okay. Facilities are decent enough but the IT department doesn't know what its doing, societies are hit and miss the computing society imploded while I was there and no longer exists. The SU is pretty useless, its not really a union just a front for the university to shut up any dissident students. Careers staff and the like are pretty good. Internet is okay but depends on the time of day, WiFi sginal is strong but nothing to shout about in terms of speed.

Salford uni is amazing! I am so glad I found out about this place. It’s bascially in Manchester (just next door) but you get to Live and study on campus. Halls in peel park are incredibly modern, sociable and I’ve met some great people already. This uni accommodation is much cheaper than down south and Manchester in general is way more affordable. I LOVE Manchester as a place to live and think more people should move up here and come and experience Salford uni for themselves.

The University of Salford is the worst university I attended so far. As a PhD student, the university’s only priority is to have you finish your course within 4 years independently of the quality of your work. Lacks health and safety practices result in dangerous situations in the lad and general working conditions are bad because of the state of the buildings and the lack of cleaning. Kitchen facilities within the university are minimum (PhD students are expected to provide kettles and other kitchen equipment themselves) and the food outlets on campus are expensive. Funding opportunities for research, trips and conferences are minimal and depend mainly on the budget of your supervisor. Unfortunately, supervisors can advertise fully funded PhD positions without having obtained any funding. Funding provided by the university for conferences and research is at the discretion of the university and varies from year to year (£350 per year at the moment). In general, as a PhD student at the

Currently enrolled post grad student. Following submission of work in early January, I'm still waiting to receive my grades and feedback with no explanation from the lecturers in question. One module was so poorly organised, it received universally negative feedback from every student on the course (it was more like a high school media studies class than a post graduate module). The Media City campus is a good place to be but otherwise I wouldn't recommend this university in terms of location or much else.

The univerity service is appalling their teaching format is all reading from presentations and occasionally there is a site visit. the support from some tutors is non existent however there are some tutors such as Will Swan who are amazing. The main issue is that the university is more interested in regenerating the campus than they are in teaching students. They are also eager to collect student fees which they over charge without checking as they tried to charge me £6000 when my course is only £1820 and i am a returning student so they should be aware. This poor approach and lack of support and communication means i could not recommend the service for future students wanting to learn, please dont waste your money. large organisations always provide a poor service and with Salford competing for government work and also testing products for manufacturers they clearly dont have time to teach students which is the main objective of the university.

This university thinks they are in the same league as Cambridge University, while in reality most staff members are less qualified than the students they are teaching and it shows very clearly in Lectures, Assignments and the general attitude displayed by the staff. Avoid at all cost, better be uneducated than to graduate from this university (I dropped out of my course even though I passed all modules)

Hated it here. Wasn't made aware of any clubs/societies, the software they use online for blackboard is so outdated, my brother who attends Manchester uni commented on how old fashioned it is. The place itself is old fashioned too. Teaching is average at best, when me and my friends asked around a lot of people said they had no idea what was going on and many people look bored to tears. Worst part though is receiving no help for any problems I have, had an awful group experience working with someone before Christmas, emailed the teacher explaining it all as the presentation was subpar because of this persons lack of effort and work and another member of the group emailed too and we had no response from him at all, as though knowing he didn't have to teach us next semester meant it was ok to ignore a real problem. Have another issue recently regarding another group work, sent my teacher an email explaining everything about a month ago now and had no answer

Salford in it's entirety is not the nicest of places to live, but everywhere has its downfalls. The University itself is growing bigger and bigger each year with new buildings and courses to help the next generation strive upon their strengths. The Students Union had a make over 2 years ago and now does excellent food and puts on some really great social nights for everyone to come down and get meeting new people no matter what your ethnicity or religion is. It is a really nice and friendly place to relax. Both campus' (main and media city) are new and modern and with the new addition of the highrise student accommodation opened for 2015, everything is literally on your doorstep.

The university's facilaties are really good. There are plenty of clubs and societies to join. The student union used to be really good but dated, they recently re-decorated and changed the food menu and drinks. Since then, the food has been horrid, both the food and drinks are way overpriced for what they are, and the pool tables rarely work. And if a large group, such as a club or society go in, there are never enough seats for everyone and little room to stand. It does look pretty though! And for the careers service, I've never once heard of this or recieved any information about one, but my course isn't the best and they rarely hand information out about the course, never mind other things like career service or wordscope (help to write assignments). I would say the university is really good, but be careful what course you choose! and there are plenty of other places to eat/drink other than student union. Most people avoid that place too!

Best university their is. The university library is fully equipped with everything a student needs. All tutors are easy and really available to help out students out of lecture hours. From time to time the university board meets with students needs. And the university student union is the best with social events almost every week repeatedly and also with helping students with their quarries.

It's a good university. I can only really speak for the MediaCityUK campus, because that's where I spend most of my time. But the internet is good, there are lots of clubs and socs. The facilities are mostly up to scratch and there is lots of support available (very easily) if you're struggling who will help you through. The only thing is the campus bus, which is very unreliable.
