Here at International @CampusLife we help students, and their families, with all sorts of non-academic problems.
We are fully trained immigration specialists but will try and assist with any queries about being an international student in the UK that you might have.
We run welcome activities over the main arrival periods, as well as social activities and trips throughout the year. We hope very much to see and welcome you on those soon.
We have put together a set of International Students Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and so please check there first if you are looking for specific information.
Getting the help and advice you need
It is important to International @CampusLife that they are available to support as many students as possible students as quickly as we can.
We have a very comprehensive website providing detailed information about a variety of international student issues.To see if you can get the advice you need right now, it is worth checking our International Student FAQs first to see if you find the answer you need there.
For answers to queries that can't be solved via the web, the team run Monday to Friday Quick Queries sessions via our Live Chat facility, virtual/live face to face methods. If you have a complex query it is best to email us and an Adviser will arrange any necessary follow up sessions direct with you.
Please do not contact us by multiple methods about the same query- we are a very small team and there are more than 4000 international students (plus applicants) at Swansea University we need to support. Sending multiple communications about the same thing causes delays in our repsonse to you and your fellow students- we appreciate your support and understanding.
Please see below for more details about the Quick Queries sessions.

Please be sure to add your name to the chat box when you first arrive so we know who entered and in what order. We will ask you for your student number (as the Wonder session is for enrolled students only). We will start to limit arrivals close to closure time and if the room is getting busy, may ask you to come back on another day or send us an email/join our Live Chat. You can join the 'Waiting Room' table and our advisor will invite you to their room as quickly as they can. We appreciate your patience.
