Student Services is the first contact point for information, support and advice on anything from careers advice to financial assistance. Our specialist student support staff are available at Llwyn y Bryn, Tycoch and Gorseinon campuses.

Well-being service

Got a problem? We can help. Students can talk, in a confidential setting, about anything including academic problems, depression, anxiety, help with anger management, stress or bullying.

The college’s modern multimedia libraries have everything you need to get ahead in your education.

Careers Guidance

Based at Tycoch and Gorseinon, Careers Wales are available to help you with your career choices, mock interviews, developing work skills and looking into employment or university.

If we know what you need we can make all reasonable adjustments to help you succeed. All disclosures will be treated sensitively. Additional learning resources are also available, such as computers, laptops and educational software to aid literacy.

Gower College Swansea Additional Learning Support Policy

Inclusion Charter

For the last three years, the Gower College Swansea ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) Strategy Group has worked to create a positive educational environment for all ASD learners to be successful and progress both within and beyond the college. The group is made up both college staff members and external stakeholders from around the Swansea area who can an impact upon ASD issues.

Last year a commitment was made by proposing a GCS Inclusion Charter which would be displayed around the college and reported on annually. This was recognised by the Welsh Assembly’s cross party group on autism as good practice for the post-16 sector.
