GENERAL INFORMATION Welcome to the University of Salford We are delighted that you are thinking about studying at the University of Salford for a semester or a full year as part of your academic development. We are extremely proud of our international student community and the contribution our incoming exchange and study abroad students make to our University and to Salford itself. We welcome all incoming international students and you are guaranteed support throughout your time with us. This catalogue collates module choices for our exchange students. Our home students are required to finish their academic year with 120 credits, which generally equates to 60 credits (or 3 modules) per semester of study. Therefore, we recommend that our exchange students follow this pattern so they are not overwhelmed by their academic commitments, and find their academic workload is able to balance with other commitments outside of university life. However, if your home institution requires more than 60 credits per semester to pass, please get in contact and we will ensure that you have the required amount of credits to transfer to your home institution. Check our course finder here. Our undergraduate programmes run for three years, and the level of study is therefore split into three levels: Level 4 (the first year of study), Level 5 (the second year of study), and Level 6 (the third year of study). With each increase in level, there is an increase in expectations placed on the performance of our students.

www.salford.ac.uk

Please consider this when selecting your modules and try to pick modules that reflect your level of study. For example, if you were starting your second year of study with us, we would recommend selecting Level 5 modules, or a mixture of Level 5 and Level 6 modules. Once you have selected the modules you would like to take (and made sure that the credits make up 60, or the number which your home institution requires), you should list these in your application form. Note that all modules are subject to availability and while we will do as much as we can to make sure you are registered on the modules you are interested in, your modules will only be confirmed once you register. If you are interested in studying another language either as part of your studies for credit or as an extra curricula option, University Wide Language Programme (UWLP) offers classes in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. Options will differ by start date and the School you are registered in. Visit www.salford.ac.uk/international/salford-languages/courses/ university-wide-language-programme for further information. If you need further support or information, visit our website or send an email to StudyAbroad@salford.ac.uk and we will help you as much as we can. We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully welcoming you to Salford soon!

ACADEMIC CALENDAR You can find our trimester dates here

Trimester 1: Start Date: Monday 7 January 2019 End Date: Friday 18 January 2019

Trimester 2: Start Date: Tuesday 7 May 2019 End Date: Friday 24 May 2019

Results: Start Date: Monday 19 August 2019 End Date: Friday 6 September 2019

Whilst these are the main exam periods for the University, a number of exams take place outside of these periods to enable us to accommodate different programme start/end dates and programme delivery styles. You must always check with your University of Salford School office for confirmation of your exam periods. We also understand that some trimester 1 students may need to return to their home institution in January and therefore will not be available to attend an examination here in Salford. If this is the case, you should alert your Salford University School and the Study Abroad team on arrival so an alternative assessment can be arranged.

Transcripts: If you study with us in the first trimester, you will be issued with a ‘results letter’ shortly after your studies have ended and your results have been confirmed. It is up to the individual to share the results with your home institution. The Results Letter will indicate the grades you have obtained at the University of Salford but is not formal recognition of your results as this does not happen until the Boards of Examiners sit in the summer to ratify all marks. If you study with us in the second trimester, you will be issued with a formal transcript ratified by the University of Salford.

SCHOOL OF

THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT The School of the Built Environment (SoBE) aims to transform the quality of life for society whilst ensuring the wellbeing of future generations through the provision of better and more sustainable urban futures. We engage in quality, advanced, cutting edge and impactful education and research in the built and human environment. SoBE is a rich community of internationally recognised scholars working with students, business and industry across all levels of study and research. The programmes in SoBE provide continuous opportunities for application of concepts, ideas and knowledge to simulated and actual built environment projects. Additionally, our global reach enables us to deliver the School’s teaching and research collaboratively through valued international partnerships including the Colombo School of Construction Technology in Sri Lanka, and Rushmore Business School in Mauritius. The School has been leading the research agenda in the built environment in the UK for more than 20 years, and is

www.salford.ac.uk

continuously rated top in the national research assessment rankings. All of our research focuses on solutions for real world problems in the built environment as it is today and on building the environment society needs for the future. Using cutting-edge technology and being industry focused in nature, learning packages identify key elements from original course material, and use innovative resources to convey these elements in a way that supports a high-quality learning experience for our students. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and training opportunities are developed with professional institutions such as the APM, CIAT, CIOB and RICS to meet and anticipate the needs of the built environment workforce. In addition, the consultancy services we provide add high value across a variety of industries such as the health, infrastructure and education sectors as well as the public and private sectors. I hope you will join us to continue building for success!

ENVIRONMENT & LIFE SCIENCES Whilst studying at Salford, you will spend a lot of your time on campus and your family will soon become those working alongside you. It’s a large and diverse family, in fact, we welcome approximately 300 students to the School of Environment and Life Sciences from other countries across the world each year. We are dedicated to exploring and learning about the diverse and evolutionary challenges of life. As such, we cover an extensive range of study across all areas of Biological Science, Chemistry, Environment, Health, Geography and Wildlife Conservation. We know world-class facilities are key to attracting the best students and staff possible, which is why we’re continuously developing ours to

be ahead of the field. We have recently invested in the development of a new, state-of-the-art, integrated teaching laboratory known as the Bodmer Lab. The Bodmer Lab is a specialist, purpose built facility and ensures our students benefit from the latest technologies to support their learning and remain on the cutting edge of innovation and discovery. The university hosts industry standard instrumentation including cell culture facilities, FACS, MALDI-TOF, LC and GC mass spectrometry, FTIR and FTNMR spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Having access to industry standard technology means that upon graduation, our students are fully prepared and equipped to enter the workplace.
