Top five tips for Freshers / Pum prif awgrymiadau ar gyfer y Glas

Thu 21 May 2015

 
With A level exams ongoing it’s almost time to think of Freshers and the plans that come with. Freshers is such an exciting time for any student, you make new friends, see new places and often it’s your first time away from your close friends and family. Speaking to Wales Online this week Hayley Harris at Swansea University Students’ Union Advice and Support Centre gives some advice to those who will be joining us in September (and a reminder to those who are staying with us!):
 
“Our staff offer free, impartial advice on housing and academic problems as well as financial, consumer and personal issues.
 
Here are my top five tips for Freshers:
 
1. Meet lots of new people, join clubs and groups you are interested in.
2. Find a great house with great friends (students can pop in to see us for some advice on house hunting and get their contract checked for free).
3. Get the balance right. Have fun and enjoy a good social life but make sure that your studies are still a priority. Eating sensibly and exercising will help keep you motivated.
4. Be organised! Make sure you know deadline dates, plan your workload in advance and this will save you last minute stress.
5. Don’t suffer in silence. If you have a problem or you don’t understand something, ASK! There are lots of different support systems at Swansea University to help you when the going gets tough.”
This is an extract from an original article from Wales Online. You can find the original article here: http://bit.ly/1FEkOES

Gydag arholiadau lefel A yn barhau mae bron yn amser i feddwl am Wythnos y Glas a'r cynlluniau sy’n ynghlwm. Mae Wythnos y Glas yn adeg cyffroes i unrhyw fyfyriwr, byddwch yn gwneud ffrindiau newydd, gweld llefydd newydd ac yn aml dyma eich tro cyntaf i ffwrdd oddi wrth eich ffrindiau agos a theulu. Wrth siarad â Wales Online wythnos hon mae Hayley Harris o Ganolfan Cymorth a Chynghori Undeb y Myfyrwyr Prifysgol Abertawe yn rhoi cyngor i’r rhai fydd yn ymuno a ni yn fis Medi (a nodyn atgoffa i’r rhai sy’n aros gyda ni!):
“Mae ein staff yn cynnig cyngor rhad ac am ddim, diduedd ar broblemau tai ac academaidd yn ogystal ag ariannol, defnyddwyr a materion personol.
 
Dyma fy pum prif awgrymiadau ar gyfer y Glas:
1.   Cyfarfod llawer o bobl newydd, ymuno a chlybiau a grwpiau gennych ddiddordeb ynddo.
2.   Dod o hyd i dy gwych gyda ffrindiau gwych (gall myfyrwyr galw heibio i’n gweld am gyngor ar chwilio am dy, gan gael eu contract wedi ei gwirio yn rhad ac am ddim gennym).
3.   Cael y cydbwysedd cywir. Cewch hwyl a mwynhau bywyd cymdeithasol da ond sicrhewch fod eich astudiaethau dal yn flaenoriaeth. Bydd bwyta’n synhwyrol ac ymarfer corff yn helpu cadw eich cymhelliant.
4.   Byddwch yn drefnus! Gwnewch yn siwr eich bod yn gwybod y dyddiadau cau, cynlluniwch eich llwyth gwaith ymlaen llaw gan y bydd hyn yn arbed straen munud olaf.
5.   Peidiwch â dioddef yn dawel. Os oes gennych unrhyw broblem neu nad ydych yn deall rhywbeth GOFYNNWCH! Mae llawer o wahanol systemau cymorth ym Mhrifysgol Abertawe i’ch help pan fydd pethau yn mynd yn anodd.”

Not All Lost At Welsh Varsity // Popeth Ddim Wedi Ei Colli Yn Y Varsity Cymraeg

Fri 24 Apr 2015

Although we didn't win the Welsh Varsity, success came in a different medium this year

Not All Lost at Welsh Varsity/ Popeth Ddim Wedi Ei Colli Yn Y Varsity Cymraeg

Although we didn’t win the Welsh Varsity, success came in a different medium this year. The atmosphere was brilliant with the usual buzz of the competition and the sun itself seemed to also be on Swansea’s side but not even the sun could outshine the greatest success of the day…

Swansea University’s Sports Societies partnered up with Stonewall Cymru’s ‘Rainbow Laces’ campaign for 2015’s Welsh Varsity. In front of thousands of fans, competitors’ sported rainbow striped shoelaces in a stand against homophobic 'banter’ in sport both on and off the pitch.

Stonewall Cymru’s research with Sport Wales shows that one in three LGBT people have experienced exclusion from sport because of their sexual orientation, and three in four respondents reported hearing homophobic ‘banter’.  Ex- SUSU President and current Campaigns Manager at Stonewall Luke Young said “By wearing Rainbow laces at the Welsh Varsity, Cardiff and Swansea students are sending a powerful message that a player’s sexual orientation or gender identity should not be a barrier to taking part and that sport must be open to all.”

The campaign had huge success on the day, with Twitter buzzing with the hashtag #rainbowlaces and teams posting their multi-coloured laces.  The Union is honoured to support Stonewalls campaign and as Sports officer Charlotte Peters says ‘we want a sporting environment that’s welcoming to all. We’re proud to play our part’.


Er na enillom Varsity Cymru blwyddyn yma, death llwyddiant mewn ffurf gwahanol. Roedd yr awyrgylch yn anhygoel â bwrlwm arferol y chwarae a’r tywydd ei hunain fel pe taent o blaid Abertawe, ond ni all yr haul hyd yn oed ddisgleirio’n fwy na llwyddiant mwyaf y dydd….

Ymunodd Cymdeithasau Chwaraeon Prifysgol Abertawe gydag ymgyrch ‘Criau lliwiau’r enfys’ Stonewall Cymru ar gyfer Varsity Cymru 2015. O flaen miloedd o gefnogwyr, gwisgodd cystadleuwyr griau lliwiau’r enfys i brotestio yn erbyn ‘miri' homoffobig o fewn chwaraeon ac oddi ar y cae.

Dangosa ymchwil Stonewall Cymru gyda Sport Wales bod un ymhob tri person LHDT wedi cael ei hynysu o chwaraeon oherwydd ei rhywioldeb, a dwedodd tri ymhob pedwar ymholwyr eu bod wedi clywed mirir ‘homoffobig’. Dywedodd Luke Young, cyn-lywydd UMPA a Rheolwr presennol ymgyrchoedd Stonewall “Trwy wisgo criau lliwiau’r enfys yn Varsity Cymru, mae myfyrwyr Caerdydd ac Abertawe’n cyfleu neges gryf na ddylai rhywioldeb neu rhyw chwaraewr fod yn rwystr i gymryd rgab a dylai chwaraeon fod yn agored i bawb.”

Cafodd yr ymgyrch lwyddiant mawr ar y diwrnod, gyda Trydar yn llawn hashtags #criaulliwiaurenfys a timau’n postio lluniau o’u criau amryliw.Mae’r undeb wedi’i anrhydeddu i gefnogi ymgyrch Stonewall a fel dywedodd Charlotte Peters ‘Rydyn ni eisiau awyrgylch chwaraeon sy’n agored i bawb. Rydym yn falch i gyfrannu.’

GE15 General Election GenerationVote Register to vote RegisterToVote UK General Election

Do you want to vote in the UK General Election on upcoming the 7th May?!

 

*THEN TAKE 5 MINUTES TO MAKE SURE YOU DEFINITELY REGISTERED TO VOTE BY TOMORROW, MONDAY THE 20TH APRIL*

 

Registering to vote is simple. It only takes 5 minutes to do it on-line, please do it NOWhere.

All you need to hand is your National Insurance Number and your date of birth. You can find your National Insurance Number on a payslip if you work part time and if you log in to your Student Loan account.

If you have registered to vote at home (elsewhere in the UK), please note that your polling card will not be sent to Swansea. If you want to vote in Swansea, make sure you register now.

If you aren’t sure whether you are already registered, contact your Local Authority. You can find out more at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk

Why does this matter to students? Because just being registered to vote gives you power; it gives you influence and a stake in society. When politicians make decisions, they look at who is on the electoral register and who votes. And what do they see? As it stands, only about half of young people are registered, compared to 96% of older people.

If you want to cast a vote on May the 7th you must register to vote by tomorrow, Monday the 20th of April, otherwise you will not be able to!

Questions? You can either reply to this e-mail or you can post them to our facebook event here.

Student Award Survey / Arolwg Gwobrau Myfyrwyr

Mon 30 Mar 2015

FREE Swansea University ‘Keep Cup’ with hot drink to the first 100 respondents! / Hoffech chi gydnabyddiaeth swyddogol am eich cyfranogiad at ddatblygiad atebion cynaliadwy?

Student Award Survey

FREE Swansea University ‘Keep Cup’ with hot drink to the first 100 respondents!

 

Would you like official recognition for your contribution to developing sustainable solutions?

We think it would be a good idea to establish a new student Award to recognise students who, via their course, contribute their own thinking to the issues of (non-)sustainability.  What do you think?

 

Such an Award would

  • Celebrate your learning and interest in sustainability
  • Evidence your course’s contribution to sustainability
  • Serve as official recognition for your time and effort
  • Add to your CV
  • Further enhance your employability skills

 

Education for Sustainability

  • Introduces critical-thinking
  • Develops skills to challenge non-sustainable norms
  • Advances understanding of the relevance of your discipline to sustainability
  • Increases your ability to make positive changes for the future
  • Enhances confidence to question and seek new alternatives for a sustainable future  

 

Future Prospects

 

The proposed new student Award would be the first step towards the ultimate aspiration to create a self-sustaining student programme which would facilitate  the development of understanding, skills and tools  among those students wishing to accelerate their contributions to building a more sustainable future.

 

Your responses will be anonymised

 

The individual responses you give, and your student and course identity, will be known only to the research team and used only for the purposes of this research (including letting you know if you are one of the lucky 100 recipients of a FREE ‘Keep-Cup’ and hot drink).  Any published results will be in summary. Should you wish to identify yourself to offer help, or so that we can provide the results to you, you may do so at the end of the survey.

 

We very much look forward to hearing your views and thank you in advance for your time and thoughts.

  • Gwella eich gallu i wneud newidiadau cadarnhaol ar gyfer y dyfodol
  • Cynyddu eich hyder i gwestiynu a dod o hyd I opsiynau amgen ar gyfer dyfodol cynaliadwy

 

Gobeithion am y Dyfodol

 

Byddai’r Wobr Myfyriwr newydd yn gam cyntaf tuag at yr uchelgais o greu rhaglen hunan-gynhaliol fydd yn hwyluso datblygiad dealltwriaeth, sgiliau ac offer ymysg y myfyrwyr rhieni sydd am gynyddu eu cyfranogiad i adeiladu dyfodol cynaliadwy.
 

Caiff eich ymateb ei wneud yn ddi-enw

 

Bydd yr ymatebion unigol y byddwch yn eu cyflwyno, a’ch manylion myfyriwr a chwrs yn wyddys i’r tîm ymchwilio yn unig ac yn cael eu defnyddio ar gyfer yr ymchwiliad yma yn unig (gan gynnwys eich hysbysu os ydych chi wedi ennill un o’r 100 ‘cwpan cadw’ a diod poeth); bydd unrhyw ganlyniadau sy'n cael eu cyhoeddi ar ffurf crynodeb.

However - this prize pales into insignificance alongside the chance to be the person that gave the bar its name. Generations of students will marvel at your genius.

To submit your suggestion visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QWVD5T6.

The café-bar will be the most exciting feature of the retail street at the Bay Campus. Contemporary coffee shop and general chill out area by day, relaxed and funky bar by night, it needs a name that will reflect its status as the place to be.

The café-bar will be styled with beach and watersports influences, with a retro touch and echoes of a bygone era. Customised furniture and decorations will ensure that it is an oasis of calm amid a busy and modern campus. 

It’s one of several outlets at the Bay Campus, which will include a main food court with multiple pods serving a mix of traditional foods, street food and internationally influenced cuisine. There will also be catering outlets in the College of Engineering, School of Management, Library and Great Hall. Keep an eye out too for new menus and developments on the Singleton Park Campus.

Themes to consider are:

  • Welsh heritage and identity
  • Beach and waterfront  
  • Industrial heritage of the site and Swansea University
  • Science and innovation
  • Natural environment and Crymlyn Burrows SSSI

Also don’t forget that:

  • The name must not infringe any existing trademarks or copyrights
  • The name must be acceptable across the University’s multi-cultural student community
  • The name must not be inappropriate or offensive!

Building 'castles' for the future students of Swansea University

Wed 26 Nov 2014

Swansea University has unveiled the names of its new Bay Campus students residences

Swansea University has today unveiled the names which will be given to the new students residences following the opening of the Bay Campus in September 2015.

Whilst the development programme heralds a new era for Swansea University,  the recognition of the role that Welsh heritage and culture has on attracting both local and international students has been firmly acknowledged. Through consultation with students, staff and St Modwen it was agreed that the student residence buildings should be named after our famous Welsh Castles and the Princes and Princesses of Wales. There are over 400 castles in Wales with many castles such as Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen dating as far back as the 12th Century, built to last by Lord Rhys, one of Wales’ first Princes of Wales.

Ceinwen Cloney, the President of Swansea University’s Student’s Union said:

“Honouring Welsh history through the naming of the residences is a great way to inspire new students to learn more about the rich culture of Wales’’

The residences are being built around stunning courtyards which connect each of the buildings providing a true community feel. The architecture of the student residences also reflects the ‘Castle’ themes with detail such as archways and balconies. Another similarity is that historically Castles were built at strategic locations next to the sea, students living at the Bay Campus will be able to enjoy sweeping views and access the beach from their own doorstep…

Ceinwen added: “Having seen the plans and the current building works going on, students are set to have an amazing space to live at the new Bay Campus.”

Students will be allowed to apply for accommodation at the Bay and Park Campus from January 2015.

The names of the thirteen residences are: Cadell, Cardigan, Carreg Cennen, Dinefwr, Dolbarden, Dryslwyn, Emlyn, Ewloe, Pen y Bryn, Gruffydd, Gwenllian, Llywelyn Fawr and Manorbier.

What one thing would you change?

Fri 24 Oct 2014

The Union are putting your ideas in to action and helping you make a difference on campus.

leader-union

Student Forums are evolving and the next event is giving you the power to make a change at university.

The Union are asking students to tell us what change they would make if they were given the chance and these ideas will help shape our work over the next year and in to the future.

All students have been invited to join in the Student Forum taking place on the 4th of November and discuss what their priorities are. Even if you can't make the event itself we still want to hear from you and will work on your suggestions.

So far ideas have been rolling in and differences are already being made! If you'd like to be part of these changes then please tell us the one thing that has been really bothering you at university.

If the reward of making a difference isn't enough, we will also be supplying a free lunch at the event! So please come along at 1pm in the Hive and make your stamp at university.

Union rings in retail changes

Tue 02 Sep 2014

On-campus retailer becomes first in Wales to adopt ‘scan bag and go’ mobile payment technology

SWANSEA University is set to become the first in the Wales to adopt a revolutionary new payment system at its retail outlet, thanks to a mobile phone app that converts smartphones into cash registers.

The Costcutter store, based at the Students’ Union, will go live with the innovative ‘Mini Checkout’ app today, allowing it to offer a queue-free experience to students who can now scan, bag and go.

The app, pioneered by Newport retail services firm Retail Merchandising Services (RMS), allows shoppers to scan items’ barcodes and directly charges their bank account, saving the time that would have been spent queuing in store, ensuring a more convenient, less stressful shopping experience.

After downloading the app, consumers are asked to input their bank details into a secure database. Then, when shopping, they can quickly pay for the items in their ‘basket’, using their stored debit card details. When exiting the store, shoppers then scan a generated barcode on their smartphone against an optical scanner to verify their digital receipt for security purposes. 

With fees charged by credit cards companies to retailers ranging from up to 2.5% per transaction, this technology – available on Android and iPhone- only takes 1.5% of each transaction, with the remainder going to the retailer.

The app, which is being targeted at Britain’s 47,000 independent retailers, will be unveiled by veteran Welsh sprinter Christian Malcolm, who has joined the RMS team following his retirement.

Mr Malcolm, who started his professional career in 1998, ran his last Welsh Athletics International race earlier this month. He will now embark on the next stage of his career as an Ambassador for RMS, alongside CEO Peter O’Toole and CEO of the Celtic Manor resort Dylan Matthews.

Four-time Olympian Mr Malcolm will spearhead the marketing and rollout of Mini Checkout, with RMS aiming to export the technology globally.

In addition to its technology offering, the company provides a full range of retail services to major retail chains including store design and build, recruitment, training and distribution. Its client base includes national retailers such as Tesco, John Lewis, B&Q, Co-Op and Asda.

The firm, which increased sales by 229% between 2010 and 2012, won the ‘fastest growing firm in the retail and wholesale sector’ award at the 2013 Wales Fast Growth 50 awards and is targeting increased sales this financial year.  

Alongside that, its chief executive officer, Peter O’Toole, is the current Entrepreneur of the Year, scooping the award at the 2013 IWA / Western Mail Business Awards.

Peter O’Toole, CEO of RMS and Mini Checkout, said: 

“We are delighted to announce Swansea University as the first in the UK to sign up to Mini Checkout at its main retail outlet.

“This Costcutter store’s daily customers will be students and young people, all using smartphones and operating at 100mph and with the speed of this app, shopping here will be a much faster and more enjoyable shopping experience.

“With convenience stores seeking to expand and compete against major supermarkets, this technology puts them one step ahead, without having to invest in costly self-scan infrastructure and new tills. With this app, all shoppers need to do is scan, bag and go.”    

Christian Malcolm said:

“This new app will appeal to tech-savvy young people and will ease the pain of queuing in a busy student store. As everyone knows, I’m all about speed and that is exactly what Mini Checkout offers retailers.

“I’m also really excited join the RMS team I’m always seeking the next challenge in life and my next goal is to help retailers improve the customer experience.”

Peter added:

“It is with great pleasure that I announce Christian as a new member of the RMS team. His commitment to Welsh athletics over the last 15 years has been tremendous and hopefully if he can replicate half of that with us, we will be on to a winner.” 

Martin Caldwell, Swansea University Student’s Union Commercial Manager, said:

“We're always looking to be an innovative and forward thinking organisation, so we were very excited to be invited to take part in this project.

“We look forward to its future success”
