    Hello my lovely Swansea students. How are you all?

    Now, I hope to study at lovely Swansea. I have some questions for you, I hope you can answer them!

    1) When you receive your student email, what does it look like? That is to say, is it based on name, last name, or is it random? Or something else..?

    Perhaps related to this,
    2) Is there any way to have a semi-official 'chosen name' or 'preferred name'? I haven't gone by my full first name for many, many years and would like not to be known as that while I'm at university. However, since it's my legal name, I would probably have to have it on a degree certificate. Obviously it's a given that I just give out my preferred name in informal contexts. :p:

    Thank you for answering my questions! (I'll look so silly if nobody answers now. :woo:) I'd like to take the opportunity to say that you are some of the nicest, most open people I've met both in real life and on TSR. Thank you! :o:

    Your email address will be in the form of your student ID e.g. [email protected]. If I remember correctly, you should have already received this...

    I have no idea about your second question. You'd be better off asking student records about that one - [email protected]

    Oh, don't worry about me, I should have said - I'm 2010 entry. I'm just in love with Swansea and can't see myself going elsewhere! It's a number, then? That's good. Thank you! :p:

    i applied to ucas using my 'shortened' name so that it would go straight through like that!! Not overly bothered about having the lengthened version on my degree but if i am i'll talk to academic registry nearer the time!! Not sure if this helps or not but hey
