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.

Pick up your University ID Card

Pick up your new University ID card from one of these venues. You must be enrolled and bring proof of your identity for example, your passport, bus pass, driving licence, UK ID card or other photo ID.

Attend College Induction and Welcome week events

  • Attend an induction talk about your studies, tutors, module selection, health and safety, IT facilities and attending other events during the week.
  • Receive your course materials, for example, a timetable and departmental handbook.
  • If you need to change your module selection, ask staff for advice before signing up for a module. By the start of term you should have chosen modules totalling 120 credits.
