Categories: Latest News



The University of Salford today (9th October) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Karnataka State Higher Education Council in Bangalore while visiting India as part of a 30-strong delegation from Greater Manchester.

The visit has been delivered by the Manchester India Partnership and fronted by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.

The signing of this MoU signifies the university’s commitment to investing in India. The agreement will look to promote collaboration between the UK and India at both institutions through activities such as the development of joint research projects, exchange programmes and driving international entrepreneurship. These activities span across subjects that are of critical importance to the future of industry, including smart cities, health and wellbeing, biosciences and advanced manufacturing and robotics.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Purves said: “We’re incredibly excited to be collaborating with Karnataka State Higher Education Council. By sharing our expertise in our specialist areas and creating opportunities for partnership, we can uncover unique insights into the industries that are rapidly transforming the way that we, and our students, will live our lives in the years ahead. ” 

Applications from India represent approximately 25% of the total number of international applications received by the University and to support students from India the University has an Indian Student Society, which organises cultural and social events for students and staff with an interest in India. 

UK universities, such as Salford, are very suitable for students from India, who are career-focused and eager to develop new graduate skills. With the UK Government’s announcement in September to introduce a new post-study work visa that will allow graduates to work after their studies for up to two years, the UK has become even more attractive and affordable.  The University of Salford is ideally placed to give Indian students the opportunity to develop those invaluable skills that employers want.
