Industrial Action: Marking and Assessment

Swansea University has received notice of a marking and assessment boycott to take place from Thursday 20th April. This follows a UK national vote by UCU members to continue Industrial Action across 146 universities. As yet, no further dates for strike action have been announced.

Not all members of staff will be taking part in the UCU boycott and many students will remain unaffected by the industrial action. We realise, however, that this is an unsettling time, and we want to reassure you that your education, wellbeing, and welfare remain our top priority. 

We know that you are working hard on your studies and are concentrating on completing the academic year, so please continue to focus on your work and be assured that we are doing all we can to support you during this time.  Assessments and examinations are taking place as planned, so it is important that you continue to prepare for these, meet required deadlines, and attend examinations. 

Our library and our study spaces remain open, and our Student Support services are also available should you need to access them.
