Two students using quiet study spaces - they are both wearing masksWe’re very grateful to our students for maintaining high levels of compliance throughout the pandemic, and we’re pleased to able to be returning to an on-campus University experience.

We are asking you to continue to do the right thing and make sure you comply with any protective measures in place around the campus and elsewhere, in order to protect our families, friends, and communities and continue to be able to provide on campus activity. Measures in place to protect our students can be found here. Please read the information below with some important University guidelines and Welsh Government regulations.

Lateral Flow Testing

You are encouraged to undertake testing before travelling home from Swansea University to avoid transmitting the virus if you are asymptomatic.

If you are choosing to travel home for Christmas, we would encourage you to do so after your last on-campus activity and two negative asymptomatic tests. You can pick up testing kits from both campuses.

Notify MyUniSupport regarding Self Isolation

Please ensure that you notify MyUniSupport if you have symptoms of or test positive for Covid-19; are isolating as a contact; or will be quarantining upon your arrival to the UKThe team will provide you with details of support that is available to you during periods of isolation.

Covid-19 Vaccination

The vaccination programme in Wales has seen over 80% of the adult population have now received at least one dose. If you would like information on being vaccinated against Covid-19 please follow the Welsh Government information for Higher Education students.

NHS Covid Pass

If you want to attend large events and nightclubs in Wales, you must now show your NHS COVID Pass to prove that you are either fully vaccinated or have tested negative. If you are an international student and cannot show proof of vaccination, you can show proof of a negative LFT test taken 48 hours before admittance. This will need to be logged to the NHS app or website.

Students who are Clinically Vulnerable

MyUniSupport have contacted students who have declared via the engagement mode that they are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable. If you would like to speak to a team member regarding this, please email myunisupport@swansea.ac.uk.

If you require more information, support or guidance on any of the matters above or Covid related issues please contact our friendly and knowledgeable team at  myunisupport@swansea.ac.uk.

Remember to Update your Engagement Mode

So we can support you both academically and with your wellbeing, please ensure you keep your engagement mode updated on your intranet profile, which is located under Personal Details in the Engagement Status tab, as well as your term time address. We ask students to change this as and when they arrive to engage on campus, for engagement monitoring purposes, or if they need to select a short period of online engagement due to quarantine or self-isolation due to Covid.

If you are engaging with your studies online on a temporary basis please ensure you notify the MyUniSupport team of your circumstances.

For more information on engagement monitoring procedures, please visit the MyUni Engagement Monitoring pages.
