Alongside the main University enrolment and induction events, there will be additional activities for students including a range of trips and a special International Welcome Weekend!
Please see our leaflet for International Welcome Weekend Activities September 2019 (coming soon)!
The International Welcome Weekend for the 2019/20 will take place over the weekend of 21st - 22nd September and will include useful information sessions as well as lots of fun activities to help you integrate with your new colleagues and make friends. There will also be the chance to meet your support staff, some of our community members and to find out about the volunteering opportunities that are available to you.
Sometimes it is easy to forget how important meeting people and feeling the sense of community in your environment can be. The International Welcome Weekend has been specially arranged to give you space and time to make sure that you are making those human connections which will in turn make your whole UK experience easier and more fulfilling. Happy students are successful students, and you owe yourself the chance to do as well as you can here with us in Wales!
There will also be an International Welcome Dinner held in October at the Refectory in Fulton House. Tickets for that will be just £2 which includes a buffet meal and a Welsh Twmpath led by famous Welsh Folk Band Calennig. You can expect to be formally welcomed to the Swansea by University Senior Management and other dignitaries from Swansea - what a great photo that will be to send home to your family! It's a fantastic night not to be missed and tickets will be available during the main arrival period via www.fatsoma.com/campus-life
Swansea University Student’s Union will also be running events to welcome new students to the University. More information about their social activities can be found by visiting their website www.swansea-union.co.uk
