Enrolment for Continuing Postgraduates

Enrolment steps

Before you enrol

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.

Module selection

International non-EU right to study check

  • Check your visa has not expired and covers the duration of your course. If you need to extend your visa talk to our International Campus Life office as soon as possible, browse Advice about your visa
  • Bring your passport and visa/Biometric Residence Permit (BRP card) to the international non-EU registration venue to confirm your right to study and then enrol online.

Paying your bills

  • If you rely on a bursary, scholarship, grant or loan to pay your bills, please note the first payment is made after you enrol and may not be in your bank account by the 1st day of the month. To avoid going overdrawn, we advise direct debits/making regular payments after the 7th day of the month.
  • If you have not received a University maintenance payment you were expecting, please contact the Finance Payments section.
