A very warm welcome to new undergraduate and postgraduate students in Cymraeg/Welsh, Education, English Language and TESOL, English Literature and Creative Writing, History, Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology, Modern Languages, Media, Communication and PR and Political and Cultural Studies. 

As well as the official activities you need to complete with Swansea University, there will also be induction activities organised by your Department. These are very important as they provide an opportunity to find out the details of what will be expected of you during your studies and the resources you will have access to. You will also meet other new students and the people in your department who will support you during your time with the College. New students are required to attend Departmental induction events.

Taking your first steps as a Swansea University student. Find out about Swansea University Arrivals, Welcome and Enrolment here.
