Just confirmed my offer from Swansea, it was an unconditional one, I graduated 2 years ago!
Very exciting! Swansea was the only interview where I really felt comfortable so I think I’m going to the right place.

Update - I haven’t had a response from Swansea directly, but my UCAS offer has been updated. The Foundation Degree has been removed and been replaced with copies of original certificates to be sent to Institution.

I've just sent an email through to admissions to ask what it is referring to. Will post back when I get a response!

Reminder of TSR rules:

Off site social media group chats are not allowed anywhere on TSR, including via PMs.

This is for your protection as we don't know who makes them, and who joins them. Some of you are under 18.

Please do not ask, mention or advertise them in the forum; or attempt to take discussion off our forum.

Remember, unless the official TSR rep posts a group chat that's moderated by them - no mention of them are allowed!

Congrats to everyone else who’s had an offer! After failing last year to get a place it’s a huge relief. Can’t wait to see everyone. Not too sure what to do with accommodation, whether to go halls or a house (cheaper).

I asked at the online open day and the students said that typically they get houses together rather than halls!

Yeah that’s what I was thinking, would be better. Have to see what the score is as time goes on.

My reply was deleted cause it went against the rules (i.e. mentioning of group chats elsewhere). If I can vaguely mention though, Swansea rep has told me not to worry and in the near future, the uni will contact offer holders about an online group gathering where we will be able to find prospective housemates from the same cohort etc.. I’m one!

Hello! Congrats to everyone on offers - I was wondering if anyone is thinking of commuting to Swansea from Cardiff? I currently live full time in Cardiff and am wondering if this is a reasonable idea!

I think that's partly down to me ringing them up and being confused at the Foundation Degree wording! Thankfully I can also report that I shall be joining you all in September!

Its probably a balance on personal circumstances and preferences.

I live in Cardiff as well currently. I wouldn't think it would be such a grand idea for me personally so I am going to move to Swansea in August/Sept. I cannot drive currently (will learn during University) so this is also a factor.

I’m in the same position and think I will likely do the same for first year at least, especially as we don’t know how much will be online due to COVID. Hopefully we will be able to meet via the official uni ‘meet and greet’, or when we start, and possibly car share if allowed!

Thanks! I think I would be the same if I couldn't drive - you're right about personal circumstances.

Oh that's good to hear, I'm also pretty sure I'm going to try and stay in Cardiff for the first year so would be great if we could do something like that!

I know a lot of the lecturers live in Cardiff and commute everyday so it’s definitely doable!

Confirmed Swansea too! So excited for September what's the deal with accommodation? Has anyone applied through their portal yet or do we sort it out privately after we've met each other (hopefully soon!)

Congratulations to everyone who’s received an offer! I’m super excited but also a little nervous for September!
In regards to accommodation, my plan was to try and rent a 2/3 bed flat somewhere in the Maritime Quarter with some fellow students and do it privately (I find they are a lot nicer and not overly expensive).
But I am excited to meet people and find some roommates! 🤪
