Academic Regulations exist to assure academic standards for Swansea University’s portfolio of programmes and awards. The regulations also ensure that all students are treated fairly. It is important that all students enrolled at the University familiarise themselves with the specific academic and general University regulations, policies and procedures, and the rules that apply to their studies.

References contained within the academic regulations to Faculties/Schools include, when the context so admits, ‘The College, Swansea University’, unless specifically stated otherwise. Likewise, references to Swansea University Executive Deans also include, when the context so admits, The College Director/Principal of The College, Swansea University, unless specifically stated otherwise.

The University’s regulations, policies and procedures, and Minimum Standards for Education Practice are aligned with the Quality Code published by the Quality Assurance Agency, which is the body that monitors and advises institutions on standards and quality.
