Institution Funding



Founded in 1896 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. In 1921, the Institute was renamed the Royal Technical College, Salford, but in 1958 the institution split into two separate organisations. The breakaway college became the Peel Park Technical College but changed its name first to Salford Technical Institute in 1961, then to Salford College of Technology in 1970, and finally to University College Salford in 1992.
The Royal College of Advanced Technology become the University of Salford in 1967. In 1996, the break-away University College Salford (est.1958) and the University of Salford (est.1967) were formally merged into the single institution that makes the university what it is today
