International Students

Here at askUS we have a range of services to support you as an international student. Whether you need help with your visa, advice about how to get a part time job or would just like to learn about life in the UK and to meet new people we’re here to help.

Student Advice and Support

For visa renewals, finance matters or any other issues, you can visit the askUS desk in University House and our advisors will do their best to answer your query or direct you to the service that can help you best.

Our main desk in University House is open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm. For services at MediaCity and Allerton, please click here.

Events and Social Activities

The University of Salford is based just a short walk from Manchester City Centre so there is always something going on that you can get involved in. We’ve put together a list of interesting places to visit, cheap places to eat, events, festivals and more; details will follow shortly.

There are lots of different events and activities for you to get involved both socially and to improve your employability and skills, such as health and wellbeing and enterprise events.

You can use Advantage throughout the year to find out things to do: click here to see a full list of events happening at the University over the coming months.

Working in the UK

Working whilst you study is a great idea as it allows you to add UK work experience to your CV and earn some extra cash. Our Careers and Employability department can assist you by checking your CV to make sure you're selling yourself to employers as much as possible.

If you would like information on work restrictions including term dates, please view our fact sheet for 2014-2015.
