Enrolment for continuing postgraduates

Enrolment steps

Before you enrol for continuing students

Sort out your tuition fee

  • Make your application for a UK student finance loan to Student Finance England, Wales or Northern Ireland (the Student Loans Company). If you have a loan from the Student Loans Company, your fees will be paid by your tuition fee loan/grant and your maintenance loan will be paid when you have enrolled within five working days.
  • If you have other sponsorship from your employer, trust, council or embassy, send us a confirmation of sponsorship form or letter from your sponsor by email to studentfinance@swansea.ac.uk or by post to Student Records Office, Singleton Abbey, Swansea University,  SA2 8PP
  • If the University is paying towards your fees, make sure your bursary is authorised when you enrol (Members of staff send us your Staff Bursary or Research Assistant Bursary form)
  • Otherwise you need to make your own arrangements to pay by card or direct debit when you enrol or pay in advance by logging in to the SU intranet and click on Financial Transactions to make a payment.

Paying your bills
