Swansea Academy of Inclusivity and Learner Success

Enabling people to access higher education successfully

We are:

  • Ensuring that students have the academic and pastoral support to succeed in their studies

  • Widening access to increase opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to benefit from higher education

Lead people in each academic area work with staff and students to identify good practice and enhance what we do.  We have an Academic Success Programme open to all students which offers classes in a friendly and relaxed environment.

We are working with partners in the region to offer pathways into higher education for underrepresented groups. Our partners include the South West Wales Reaching Wider Partnership, other universities, further education colleges, and schools in South West Wales.
