Late Arrivals and Late Enrolment

Late Arrivals and Late Enrolment

The university term is now underway, but we recognise that some students are still continuing to arrive with us in Swansea.

Swansea University permits late enrolment up until Friday October 13th 2017 as you have already been advised by our admissions and enrolment teams.

Please be aware that if you are planning to arrive after teaching has begun on Monday 2nd October, you will have missed a significant amount of lectures and practical classes that are important to your course, and cannot be repeated. 

For some modules, assignments may already have been set, and Extenuating Circumstances are not normally granted for late enrolment. This means that marks may be lost as a result of arriving late. It is your responsibility to catch up on all work that you have missed; please use the lecturer’s office hours to ask any questions that you may have and make yourself known to each lecturer at the start/end of the first session you attend for each module.

Should you arrive at a date later than Friday October 13th 2017, you are likely to need to defer your studies until the next academic year.

Please contact the Recruitment Team at if you are in this situation and would like to defer your offer until 2018 entry. Please contact International@CampusLife for advice on your visa and any action you may need to take. Email or call +44 (0)1792 602000.

Please be aware that you will be required to attend a college induction when you arrive. Please report to the College of Engineering Reception, upon your arrival at Swansea; we are running ‘Late Welcome and Induction Talks’ and you will be advised on arrival of which one to attend. Make yourself know to the Student Information Team if you are arriving late and need support. Just ask at Engineering Reception to speak to a member of the Student Information Team.

As soon as you arrive in Swansea, please start attending lectures immediately. All timetables can be found online at
