A GUIDE FOR INCOMING STUDY ABROAD STUDENTS 2019 - 2020

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 warmly welcome all incoming international students and you are guaranteed support throughout your time with us. This catalogue collates module choices for our incoming exchange students (on either International Exchange or Study Abroad programme). 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 short-term students follow this pattern, so they are not overwhelmed by their academic commitments, and find their academic workload balances with other commitments outside of university life. However, if your home institution requires more than 60 credits per semester to pass, please contact us 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. 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. You will also notice that some of the modules listed in this catalogue have some pre-requisites. This means that you will be required to provide evidence of your knowledge/experience in the indicated subjects in order to the enrol on your chosen module. 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. Please see http://www.salford.ac.uk/ international/salford-languages/courses/university-wide-languageprogramme 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 by clicking here

EXAM DATES Trimester 1: Start Date: Monday 6 January 2020 End Date: Friday 17 January 2020

Trimester 2: Start Date: Tuesday 5 May 2020 End Date: Friday 22 May 2020

Resits: Start Date: Monday 17 August 2020 End Date: Friday 4 September 2020

https://beta.salford.ac.uk/go-abroad

Whilst these are the main exam periods for the University, several 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 International Opportunities Team on your 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 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 shortly after the end of the trimester.

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. The School has been leading the research agenda in the built environment in the UK for more than 20 years and is continuously rated top in the national research assessment rankings. All 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.

https://beta.salford.ac.uk/go-abroad

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!

SCHOOL OF

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.

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.

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.
