Trips and Visits

Salford City College students will have the chance to go on some fantastic trips during their time with us. These trips may be subject related, or part of an extra curricular team or activity you are involved in through college.

We see trips and visits as an extension of the classroom learning environment, putting theory in to practice, and bringing a new, real-life dimension to the college experience.


Business Studies Students Jet of to China

Students went on the trip of a lifetime to the Chinese capital Beijing to see The Great Wall of China, a mind-blowing acrobat show, visits to Beijing Old Town and an Eco-Village. The purpose of the trip was to give the students an understanding of Chinese culture and the way that business is conducted in China.

“Going to China was an unforgettable experience, and a once in a life time trip. It was the best week of my life.”

Science students went on a trip to Germany as part of an international exchange project on nutrition. The two-year project, funded by Erasmus+, looks at the health implications of convenience food, and required students to work in collaboration with a partner school in Germany, called Johanna-Wittum Schule.

“I had the best time of my life on the trip. I got to visit a beautiful country, make new friends from Germany and gain plenty of scientific knowledge.”

– Science student Aziza Bikzadeh-Oskoei


 Classical Civilisation  Geography students with about 40 students visited Sorrento, Italy. Goegraphers focused on tectonic activity, coastal features and coastal management, and Classical Civilisation students looked at roman life through visits Pompei and Herculaneum.


Creative Arts students visited Germany’s capital and cultural centre Berlin. The students, who are from a variety of courses took inspiration from the city’s famous mix of history, art, and traditional and modern architecture.

 New York

Business, Humanities, Psychology and Film Study students enjoyed part of their Easter holidays in New York. Students from both Pendleton Sixth Form and Eccles Centre had an action packed five days visiting some of the main tourist attractions including; The Empire State Building, Central Park, Times Square, The Statue of Liberty, Wall Street and the Museum of Moving Images. They also visited the Ground Zero Memorial site and still had time for some shopping therapy!

Geneva – Switzerland

Our budding scientists visited the famous nuclear research centre CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research). The purpose of the trip was for the students to see the biggest particle lab in the world, home to the famous Large Hadron Collider. By exposing them to cutting edge physics, we wanted to show the students what they could aim for if they continue their studies to PhD level.

“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and the highlight for students was by far the visit to CERN. They loved seeing how the course they are studying is currently being used at the cutting edge of technological innovation and research.”

Students from Public Services had the opportunity to go to Krakow, Poland to understand more about Nazi Germany and World War II.
