We are committed to improving the experience of students studying at Swansea University. We believe that monitoring engagement can help us ensure your welfare and support you to progress and reach your academic goals.

Engagement Monitoring for Taught Students

Engagement correlates with performance. This means that the more you engage with your studies, the better you will do.

The University will use a range of data sources to monitor student engagement. These sources include:

  • Card swipes at face-to-face learning sessions – you will need to tap your student card against the readers located in each teaching room when entering in order to confirm your attendance at the session.
  • Engagement with online learning sessions and study groups.
  • Activity in Canvas to determine resources viewed.
  • Access to library e-resources.

The University’s MyEngagement Web App allows you to view your overall engagement data, which will help you to keep it on track. For full details on the engagement monitoring process and what this means for you, please go to the MyUni Engagement Monitoring Pages.

The data from the various modes of engagement gives us an early warning of students who may need help. If you aren’t engaging or are engaging poorly, your Faculty/School will be in touch to offer support.

The University’s policy on engagement monitoring for taught students can be found here: Engagement Monitoring Policy for Taught Students.

Engagement Monitoring for Research Students

The University recognises that Supervisory meetings are a key element to your success as a student and a centralised electronic system (RMS/eVision) has been developed for monitoring student engagement for these reasons. You will be required to meet with your Supervisory team at least once a month.

Engagement correlates with performance. This means the more you engage with your research, the better you will do. We also believe that monitoring engagement can help us ensure your welfare and support your progress to achieve your academic goals.

If you aren’t engaging with your research your Faculty/School will be in touch to offer support.

For full details on the engagement monitoring process and what this means for you, please go to the MyUni Engagement Monitoring Pages.

If you have any queries regarding engagement monitoring or you are experiencing any difficulties that are preventing you from engaging with your studies, please contact your Faculty/School.
