Attendance by ALL students at University classes, lectures, tutorials

The University expects all students to attend all their University classes, lectures and tutorials etc, whether or not these are described as “compulsory” by the School. This includes participating fully in the requirements of all courses, including submitting assignments, contributing to tutorials and workshops or laboratories, attending meetings with Personal Tutors and sitting examinations.

Your attendance will be monitored by the School, so that staff can help you to manage your progress through the courses. We will do this so we can be quickly alerted to any additional pastoral or academic support needs any student might require, and so that the School can provide advice, guidance or support in a timely and useful manner.
