Supplemental Student Charter in response to the COVID-19 pandemic

We have adapted to new ways of studying, working, and moving about our spaces during the pandemic and have had to change our usual behaviours.

To respect the personal safety of every student and member of staff, and indeed the wider community, and ensure we can all help to keep the University a safe place to study and work, we ask you to follow our supplemental Student Charter and keep up to date with current regulations.

Please read it carefully and ensure you follow the principles.

Please note, due to the nature of the COVID-19 situation, this supplemental charter is subject to change.
Students will be informed of any changes via email.

COVID-19 Student Conduct

Allegations of breaches of the expectations set out in the Supplemental Student Charter (above) or in respect of health and safety requirements more generally, will be considered in accordance with the University’s regulations and procedures governing student conduct and discipline.

It is important for you to read the full COVID-19 - Student Conduct Regulations. 

Swansea University's Student Charter

Here at Swansea, you are part of a vibrant, diverse and inclusive University. A positive student experience relies on a successful partnership between the University, the Students’ Union and most integrally you, our students. Your voice is incredibly important to us – we ensure all students are listened to and that feedback is valued and acted upon to enhance your time at Swansea.

As a University, we are committed to supporting you to ensure you reach your full potential.
This Student Charter was created to reinforce our commitments to you. It was produced in partnership between our students, the Students’ Union and the University’s Student Partnership & Engagement Team and highlights specific pledges of all our staff and students. We can all play our part in creating a supportive, inclusive and bright learning environment. This Charter embodies the principles that will help make your time at Swansea even more worthwhile.

Our Student Charter aims to:

- explain in simple terms what all of our students can expect from the University
- outline what is reasonably expected of students by the University
- highlight our joint commitment to enhancing the student experience
- be a valuable reference-point for our students to help them access a range of information that will help them throughout their studies

The Student Charter is reviewed and updated annually with staff and students, at the Student Partnership and Engagement Committee. The Student Charter is disseminated annually to students and staff via email, online and at inductions/academic tutor meetings, to ensure the whole student body and staff are informed and engaged.
