We advise that you contact your supervisor prior to the start of your studies, so you can discuss what the year ahead will involve and if they have any reading lists for you.
Once arriving, please read through our PGR Student-Supervisor Responsibilities document with your supervisor, sign it, and keep a copy.
While studying at the College of Engineering your supervisor, and sometimes you, will need to complete an engagement meeting each month on eVision, the University's PGR student Engagement Monitoring System. If these are not completed, it can have detrimental effects on your studies and prevent you from graduating.
A guide to using eVision can be found here.
Desks and study spaces are another thing to sort out when you first begin your studies. While studying at Swansea University, you will be allocated a desk. Tea points are available in an open-plan office and if your office doesn't have a tea point, you can request access to the adjacent hub which will have one.
