Coronavirus Recovery: advice and latest information

We understand many of our students are concerned about the impact of cost-of-living rises and we want to make sure you are aware of how to get support should you need it. 

We want to create an environment at Swansea University where you feel supported and can excel in your education. We have a number of initiatives and services in place to help you with the cost of living and are working with the Students’ Union to plan how we can offer you even more in the future. 

We have created this page to bring together all our resources into one handy support hub for our students.

Budgeting and managing your money

Budgeting is key when it comes to managing your money, so you know exactly what's coming in and going out. We have detailed and up to date information on average costs available to students on our webpages to help you plan ahead.

Money@CampusLife understand the impact the cost-of-living crisis is having on our students.  We offer a range of resources to support students including online budgeting workshops, advice on maximising your income and money saving hints & tips.
