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. You are incredibly important to us – so we want to do everything we can to enhance your time at Swansea. 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
