‌Welcome to all new students on the English Literature and Creative Writing Programmes at Swansea University! Congratulations on gaining a place to study in our Department, a friendly, supportive and engaging academic environment. You must be very excited about starting your university life in September and we look forward to welcoming you. As you are embarking on something new, here is some advice that you will find useful when preparing for your arrival.

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.
