WARNING! Swansea don’t want to know if things go wrongWatch
Big warning to anyone considering American Studies at Swansea. If you get in a panic or have a bad day on 1st yr exams there is ZERO help, ZERO pastoral care, and ZERO recourse. You will be left with a £9k bill and no way back. They don’t want to know.
If you have a bad day then you put in an extenuating circumstances claim at most unis and if you had good evidence it was something medical they can consider it.
You most likely still have finance to o to another uni.
Without knowing any of the circumstances this is just a whinge which is almost certainly wholly unjustified.
Yes it is a whinge, but justifiably so. I may not be been a model student, but attended lectures and studied. When I reached out for help, albeit late in the day, there was none proffered. I panicked and flunked a core module exam. No interest from Swansea in helping me find a way back. I have been withdrawn. 9k and a year of my life wasted at Swansea.
Have you made a complaint or an appeal?
What help did you need? Did you have extenuating circumstances?

We don't know anything about the circumstances so it is a whinge. We are only hearing one side of the story here.
I am sorry to hear about it and you can always appeal if you think you are right and you are likely to win.
