The  University  undertakes  formal  monitoring  of  the  attendance  of  all  students.    This helps the University to identify and offer support to any students who appear not to be engaging with their studies.  A member of staff will contact the student to discuss the reasons for his/her non-attendance and to then offer support and advice.  Staff can offer advice and guidance on academic matters; refer students to appropriate services or staff for further advice on personal problems; or discuss whether a change to the mode of study, transfer to another programme, or withdrawal from studies would be appropriate.

It is important therefore that students are aware that if they are not attending their course of study on a regular basis, they will be contacted by a member of staff who will discuss their non-attendance with them.  If students find that they are unable to attend, due for example to a family emergency, they should discuss this with their Programme Leader and seek permission to be absent.
