What is it really like to be a student or staff member at Salford Business School? That’s the focus of the new podcast series, Belonging, hosted by Academic Student Success Lead Sami Safadi. Featuring students and colleagues from across the School, the podcast looks to give an insight into life at the University of Salford.

Tackling issues around employability, equity, the transition to university, the role of the Student Union and much more, Belonging is a must-listen for anyone thinking of working alongside Salford Business School, as well as current and prospective students.

Many students struggle with the sense of belonging when they transition to Higher Education for the first time, and this podcast looks to highlight how Salford Business School is building a robust and inclusive sense of community, for both students of all backgrounds and colleagues.
