OCCA is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation with respect to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are following official UK government guidelines, which advise on how to contain, delay and mitigate the spread of the virus.
In line with the most recent government official guidance, all face to face OCCA meetings and events have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are focusing our efforts into providing a number of new online initiatives, including our newly launched Weekly Webinar series, Council & team meetings, networking and social events, primarily via our new Zoom platform.
Please see our website and social media platforms for details of all planned events, including booking links where appropriate.
The University of Salford celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2017 but we can trace our origins back to the industrial revolution. Today the university has a global presence and our seven schools, 20,000 students and 2,500 staff have all grown to serve the needs of industry, commerce and education. We have a proud tradition of applied research working in collaboration with
industry to solve real-world problems.
In 2017, we opened our new £3m state-of-the-art teaching laboratories within the School of Environment and Life Sciences, which offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate chemistry courses. This investment is part our ongoing campus development plan which has seen the development of our MediaCityUK campus and a suite of new facilities and buildings across the campus.
