Before you enrol
Need a new University ID card? To have your card ready to pick up during enrolment week send a recent colour passport-sized photo with your six-digit student number and name written on the back to: "Library Issue Desk, Swansea University, SA2 8PP, Wales UK"
Paying fees yourself: If you are paying part or all of your tuition fees directly ensure funds are available to pay by card or by direct debit in two instalments from a UK bank account or by cheque. If you intend on paying by bank transfer, contact the Cash Office on +44 (0)1792 295684 between 9.30am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday. A guide to paying your fees is available for:
External sponsorship: If we do not have details of your employer, trust, council or embassy and how much they are paying towards your fees send a Confirmation of Sponsorship form or a letter from your sponsor with the equivalent details to: "Student Records Office, Singleton Abbey, Swansea University, SA2 8PP" or send a scanned image to firstname.lastname@example.org
University scholarship or bursary: Students in receipt of a University scholarship or bursary contribution towards their tuition fees can confirm details are correct during enrolment. If they are not correct please contact the member of staff who originated the award and ask them to progress authorisation of your tuition fee scholarship or bursary.
Staff eligible for a staff bursary or research assistant bursary can either submit an approved application form and then enrol online, or bring the completed form in person to enrol in Student Records, Singleton Abbey.
International students need to bring a current passport and visa in person.
Continuing international students check your visa has not expired and if necessary apply for a visa extension to cover the duration of your course. IMPORTANT You are not allowed to apply for a visa extension if it would lead to spending more than 5 years studying in the UK at undergraduate or master's degree level with a Tier 4 student visa. If you think that you will be affected by the 5 year limit on study at degree level, it is very important that you talk to ISAS as soon as possible.
University payments to students If you rely on a bursary or scholarship to pay your bills note the first payment is made after you enrol and may not be in your bank account by the 1st day of the month. To avoid going overdrawn, you are strongly advised that your direct debits and standing orders should have a payment date on or after the second Monday of the month. If you have not received a payment you were expecting then contact the Finance Payments section.
