“It’s been a pleasure studying Health and Social Care with the University Centre, mainly because of the focus on practical learning in the facilities that are provided by the college. The tutors explain the topics as much as you need them to, and their career team were able to set me up with a work experience position in a local hospital. Everything’s going great so far!”

About University Centre at Salford City College


  • Students report that the employment services here provide meaningful support, including workshops based on expanding your perspectives on potential career paths, as well as writing skill and interview improvement workshops.
  • The University Centre delivers a wide variety of Adult and Higher Education courses. Normally, the first year of the HE courses is completed here and then the student transfers to the relevant university to continue with their pathway. An example of this could be Psychology and Criminology, which begins at this college and later transfers to the University of Salford.
  • The college works with multiple partner organisations to offer superior facilities, which include Pendleton Sixth Form with its graphic design studio and performance theatres, Eccles Sixth Form College with specialist animal care resources, and more.


  • Many students agree that more social activities around the campus sites would improve the experience, as most people find it challenging to make friends here due to a lack of spaces and contexts for socialising.
  • The college does not provide student residence halls, and this means that many students are forced to rent somewhere to live. Additionally, this does not help promote social interaction on campus.
