"One of my favourite responsibilities as Vice-Chancellor is welcoming new students. We have a programme of events to help you discover the support and opportunities at Swansea University. I hope the next few years will be some of your happiest; they are crucial in your academic, personal, and professional development."
"Leave Swansea with good degrees and fully prepared to make the best of life, building upon a rich variety of friendships and experiences. I encourage you to access support when you need it and take full advantage of opportunities provided through sport, volunteering, clubs and societies, study abroad, and your Students’ Union."
Firstly, a huge welcome to you all! I hope you're excited to arrive at the best city in the UK; Swansea. Welcome to the city where you will make friends for life, find unpredictable weather and experience opportunities that you won't find anywhere else. Most of all, welcome to the best few years of your life.
You've made the right choice in choosing Swansea University and soon, you’ll be making lots more important choices.
Here at Swansea University Students' Union we're here to help you make the best choices for you. Good choices like joining a society or sports club, leaving your bedroom and chatting to new housemates and going to that Freshers event you're not sure about.
Get involved with your Union through our events, societies, sport clubs and venues – that will be a choice you won't regret.'
Gwyn Aled, Students’ Union President 2018-19
