What their Students Say

“I chose the University of Salford as I was warmly welcomed, and I thoroughly enjoyed the audition when I came for the final audition for the programme in February 2021. Furthermore, the course is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford, which is special in the industry and I have always wanted to experience studying in a university as well since I did my undergraduate at a vocational dance school in London.

The experience of being immersed in a professional company environment and going on tour to perform our Triple Bill! It has been extremely beneficial to experience the process of producing 3 original works with the choreographers in both the studio and online. Moreover, experiencing the maturity and development of the 3 pieces as we progressed during the tour has taught me so much. The modules in Producing and Pedagogy have been extremely useful to enhance my knowledge in the dance field and has equipped me more as an all-rounded artist.”

‘I was attracted to study MSc Digital Marketing at the University of Salford because across the five modules, it covers a wide range of elements of digital marketing. Another part of the course which really stood out to me was the opportunity to complete the Industry Collaboration Project as my final module, which would involve me taking part in a paid placement.

The Careers and Enterprise team at Salford helped me to secure a placement as a Digital Marketing Intern at a local business where I was able to complete my project. It provided me with a fantastic opportunity to put everything I had been taught into practice and gain UK workplace experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on my placement.

As well as teaching me core digital marketing skills, the course also helped me to develop my employability skills including time management, decision-making, organisation skills and teamwork. After my placement and gaining the knowledge from my tutors, I felt ready to take the next step in my career.’
