Update from Swansea University regarding the academic year 2020-21

Thank you again for your patience as we have had to adapt to a new delivery during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Please be reassured University staff are working together planning future activity and Swansea University will be ready to teach at the start of the new academic year in September as per the published term dates (there will be variations on the start date for students enrolled on programmes leading to professional registration).

Our priority is to ensure that the education and experience of our students remains of the highest quality whilst guarding the health and safety of our students and staff. So far as it is possible, all courses will be delivered in a dual way to give both online and face to face teaching. We are continuing to follow changing Government guidance and will provide more details in due course to keep you up to date.

We look forward to welcoming you back to campus and the Swansea University community when is it safe to do so.

    When you say dual way. what does that mean for international students ? I will be a new student from Canada but I am still not sure if I can take the autumn semester strictly online and be in Swansea in January. My question is can one study solely online for the first semester ?

    • Student Communications Coordinator says:

      Hello and thank you for getting in touch. It will depend which programme you are on, so I would advise you to contact your college directly to confirm this. In principle most students should be able to study solely online, however we’d be keen to have you here in Swansea. If you are a new student, you should’ve applied for a visa before enrolling to demonstrate your intent to engage in person (as and when this is possible) Hopefully this answers your question.
