This May saw our very first Postgraduate Research Festival. Held over a two-week period, the hybrid festival featured everything from expert panels to research showcases with a wealth of student led events!
Creative-writing students organised an event to share their work with readings from poetry, short stories and plays, showcasing the exciting new talent being nurtured in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. And the popular Talking Research series, founded by ‘Outstanding Contribution to the PGR Community’ award winners Sean Holm and John Hudson, held its first event on Bay Campus. (more…)

If you’re currently experiencing any financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances outside of your control, then you may be eligible to receive some financial support from the hardship funds offered by Money@CampusLife.
Eligible applicants will receive an payment in the form of a non-repayable grant – it is not guaranteed that an award payment will be made as all assessments are based on evidence of financial hardship. Assessments can take up to 15 working days to process, possibly more if we’re required to request further information.
Please ensure you submit your application with all of the required information by 01/07/22 if you’d like an assessment. The hardship funds will close on this date for the 21/22 academic year. They will then reopen in August for the 22/23 academic year.

It’s that time of year again, and School Rep applications for the 2022-23 academic year are officially OPEN!
This year, we’re recruiting 2 Undergraduate School Reps and 1 Postgraduate Taught School Rep in each of our 11 Schools, plus one to represent students studying in The College. We would love you to be part of the team!
So, what is a School Rep?
A School Rep is an elected individual who works closely with Subject Reps to represent all students in their School. They’re supported by Students’ Union Education Officer, the Student Voice Team, and key University staff to make a real difference to the Swansea experience and ensure the student voice is represented.
School Reps attend meetings with staff in their School, the Students’ Union, and they even contribute to important University-level committees.
School Reps also work closely with the Students’ Union and University to support crucial campaigns such as StudyAid and the Big Swansea Survey.
The ideal candidates will be passionate, hardworking, reliable, and keen to make a difference.

As a student, working with academic integrity means that you complete your work with honesty, fairness, and transparency. This can look like making sure that the sources you include in your work are accurately attributed, following exam regulations, or not working with others to complete an individual assignment.
This workshop aims to help you understand Swansea University’s expectations of academic integrity. It will discuss different types of academic misconduct, such as plagiarism and collusion, and how to avoid them. It will also provide helpful tips on how to paraphrase and use direct quotes, which are essential skills for maintaining academic integrity in your writing

As part of our programme of planned maintenance, we will be carrying out road, footpath and car park resurfacing works on Singleton Park Campus this summer. The works will commence from Monday 13th June. There will be various road and footpath closures with pedestrian diversions which could impact on your regular routes through campus.
The works will involve:
Sections of the road will be closed off preventing vehicular access.
The loading bay to the front of Union House will be closed and the footpath leading to the Halls of residences from Union House will be closed at various times. There will be no access to Union House via the main entrance doors but there will be access to the side and rear. Diversions will be in place.
We will also be carrying out resurfacing works within the car park to the rear of Faraday Building (P20 on the campus plan). The car park will be closed for the duration of the works with no pedestrian access.
We will be working with contractors to minimise disruption on campus as we carry out these essential maintenance works and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please adhere to the diversions and signage.
For up to date information about parking on and around campus, as well as alternative travel options, please visit the travel pages.
