'WAVE' The new crowdfunding platform for students.

This platform enables current students to crowdfund for projects and ideas that they are unable to get off the ground due to lack of funding. The platform is unique to other leading providers such as ‘just giving’ as it’s free to use, no fees are deducted from funds raised and it is Swansea University branded, meaning many are more likely to trust it and donate.

Timetables

Timetables are made up of lectures, seminars and practical sessions. Teaching activities start on the hour and finish at ten minutes to the hour to allow students to move between classes. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have any module clashes. If you do have a clash, please email engoffice@swansea.ac.uk immediately. 

Your timetables and handbooks containing full details of the modules in your programmes can be found on the College Intranet. This includes full assessment details for every module to show whether the final marks will be based on examinations, continuous assessment or a mixture of both.
