I. Responsibility of applicants in the admissions process

I1. Provision of information

It is the responsibility of applicants to provide full and accurate information in support of their application. Applicants should also notify the Admissions Office without delay of any changes or corrections to information supplied in the original application.

I2. Terms and Conditions of offers


By accepting the offer of a place, candidates will be entering into a contract with Swansea University on the basis of the terms and conditions set out in the offer and in Swansea University’s Terms and Conditions, Statutes, Council Ordinances and Senate Regulations and all University rules, policies and procedures: www.swansea.ac.uk/admissions

I3. Fees and Deposits

Students are responsible for the payment of their own fees and debts. The University may agree to a request to invoice a third party for any fee or debt (for example the Student Loans Company, a Local Authority, Funding Council or other Sponsor). This does not affect the ultimate responsibility of the student for paying the fee or debt.

Some postgraduate programmes of study require the payment of additional “bench” fees (i.e. linked to laboratory use). Where this is the case the additional fees will be outlined in the offer of admission and will be payable on the same basis as a standard tuition fee.

The University complies with Home Office guidance on the classification of students as “Home” or “Overseas” for tuition fee purposes.

For certain professional programmes (e.g. the Legal Practice Diploma and Graduate Diploma in Law), the University, in consultation with the School/College concerned, may charge a non-refundable deposit, to be off-set against the tuition fee, when an applicant accepts an offer of a place.

In order to comply with UK Visas and Immigration regulations on the admission of International Students, the University requires International Students to pay a non-refundable deposit towards their tuition fees before they can be issued with the necessary documents to enable them to apply for a student visa to allow them to study in the UK.
