  • Bring your passport and visa
  • Bring your letter of entitlement to pick up your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP card)
  • If we need proof of your entry qualifications, bring your certificates. For example, an original bachelor degree certificate.
  • If your employer, embassy or trust is paying your tuition fee, bring your sponsor letter with you
  • If necessary, book an appointment to register with the police

Enrolment Online for all students

You will need to login to the intranet and enrol online by:

  • Checking and updating your student record and module selection information
  • If you are liable to pay a fee, you will need to make a payment by card online or set up a direct debit
  • Agreeing to the data protection statement
  • Agreeing to be a student at Swansea University and abide by the academic guide regulations
  • At the end of online enrolment you will receive confirmation that you have successfully enrolled.

If for any reason you cannot enrol online, staff will be available on campus to help you.
