University of Salford was established in 1854 as the Royal Technical Institute, Salford following a merger of the Salford Working Men's College founded in 1858 and Pendleton Mechanics Institute founded in 1850. The University aspires to be in the top quartile of UK universities by 2017 measured by their ranking in the standard league tables.
The University partnership activity embraces working very closely with the local community, regionally, nationally and internationally and spans across academic teaching and learning partnerships, research, community engagement, business and industry related activity.
