Governance Structure for the University

Swansea University operates within a constitutional framework established by its Charter and Statutes. 

The Supplemental Charter outlines the objects, powers, officers and principal bodies of the University, granting the authority to teach, conduct research, and to award degrees and other qualifications.

The Statutes lay down a number of high-level rules supporting the Charter and these, in turn, are supported by more detailed Ordinances together with a comprehensive range of academic and operational regulations and procedures, including those associated with Public Accountability.
