What you should expect after submitting your application 

After applying to the University of Salford, you’ll receive an email of confirmation and in the next few weeks you’ll receive another email from the University of Salford with the outcome. 

If you get a conditional offer… 

A conditional offer signifies acceptance into your desired course, but you’ll need to satisfy a few certain requirements to be given an unconditional offer from the University. These requirements might include uploading of some supporting documents, references and a deposit of £5,500. 

Upon fulfilling these conditions, you’ll get an unconditional offer from the University and then you will need to apply for your Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). This will help you in your visa application process.
