Postgraduate Research

The University of Salford is committed to fostering a vibrant research environment for postgraduate research students from across the world. This website offers current researchers access to the University’s comprehensive range of support services and development opportunities as well as guidance on the research degree process and regulations. 

For details of the support available through your school, including your school Postgraduate Research Handbook, please refer to the school research pages. You can keep up to date with current news, events and activities by following us on Twitter or downloading the latest version of our PGR Newsletter (November 2016).

The Department of Education recently published two new consultation documents outlining their current policy thinking on a new Postgraduate Doctoral loan. They really want to hear the views of individual students - both past and present - on the new scheme. You can submit your feedback to the consultation via their web page at until 16th December 2016
