Preparations for enrolment
- To pick up a new University ID card during Arrivals and Welcome week you will need to 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"
- Have funding in place to pay your tuition fees:
- If you intend to pay tuition fees yourself you can either make one payment by card or in two instalments by direct debit from a UK bank account. If you intend paying by bank transfer, contact the Cash Office on +44 (0)1792 295684 between 9.30am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday. for further details browse our Guide to paying fees for UK and EU students or the Guide for paying fees for International students
- Confirm you are sponsored. If your employer, trust, council or embassy is paying towards your fees please send a Confirmation of Sponsorship form or a letter from your sponsor with the equivalent details by post to: "Student Records Office, Singleton Abbey, Swansea University, SA2 8PP" or by email send a scanned image to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Make sure your University scholarship or bursary is authorised. If you have a University scholarship or bursary you 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 online authorisation of your tuition fee bursary.
- Staff eligible for a bursary need to submit an approved staff bursary form or Research Assistants need to submit a Research Assistant Bursary form before enrolling.
- International students in order to complete your enrolment please bring your current passport and visa in person .
- Continuing international students please 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 our International Student Advisory Service as soon as possible.
- If you rely on a University bursary or scholarship to pay your bills it is important to 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 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 please contact the Finance Payments section.
