Restrictions on Service Due to COVID-19

During the current situation the student life officers are only contactable via email. We are hopeful that as restrictions are removed we will be able to communicate in alternative ways in particular by having 1-2-1 meetings.

Keeping up-to-date with Student Welfare Information

We have multiple ways of keeping you informed with the latest information regarding student welfare. We will always share informaiton via Blackboard/Canvas and via email.

We also have our ‘Swansea University Medical School Student Life’ group on Faebook. Please join us there as we will be keeping you up to date with relevant information regarding student welfare. If you don't have Facebook don't worry we post the same information via Blackboard/Canvas and email.

Queries from Parents and Guardians

Please note that due to Data Protection legislation we are unable to discuss any matters relating to a student without the prior permission of the student. 

It's not that we don't want to talk to you, we just have a legal requirement to adhere to guidelines on what information we can give you. We will happily to talk to you about any general queries, but we cannot go into specific details unless there are exceptional circumstances preventing your son or daughter from contacting us. We must also have your son or daughter's written permission for us to do so.
