The University of Salford has been recognised by the Times Higher Education (THE) in their list of the top 200 most international universities (196th).
The Built Environment school represents a community of scholars of global reach, working in unison with learners across all levels of study and research, and lifelong learning professionals and organisations committed in making a difference to the sector. With very high employability successes and one of the largest global cohorts of PhD students, many graduates succeed in making a difference in industry and also in academia, by holding leadership positions in organisations and academic institutions across the world.
The School has been leading the research agenda in the built environment for more than 20 years, continuously rated top in the national Research Assessment Exercises. The School has over 1400 undergraduate students, around 600 Masters students, and 240 PhD research students from all over the world.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) opportunities are provided and the School works closely with professional institutions such as RIBA, CIAT, CIOB and RICS in the provision of CPD and professional training in general. In addition, consultancy services of high value are provided across a variety of sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, the public and the private sectors.
Recently Salford University Careers Office released 2010’s graduate survey results and the School's graduate employability reached 90%.
At undergraduate level the full-time courses offer industrial placement and sponsorship opportunities. Around 65% of graduates achieve a first or 2:1 degree (compared to a national average of 52% in the same subjects), and 96% of graduates find related employment, or go on to further study by the time they graduate.
The School also offers world-class research opportunities for professional development. The research arm is the UK's most successful, and research themes embrace information communication technology, management, and the environment.
