The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures operates a strict attendance policy in accordance with University rules:
Every student registered for a diploma or degree is expected to attend all lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes etc. In the case of absence through illness, a student must, if possible, give notice of each absence in writing to the Lecturer concerned and/or Head of Department responsible. In the case of such absence for more than four lecture days the student must, on resuming attendance, notify the Lecturer concerned and/or Head of Department in writing and, if required by the Lecturer and/or Head of Department to do so, lodge a medical certificate with the Head of Department, who in turn will send a copy to the Student Records and Examinations.
A student will not be permitted to enter for an examination at the conclusion of a module if attendance at that module is not considered satisfactory by the Registrar and Senior Vice-President Academic following a report by the Lecturer concerned and/or Head of Department responsible for the module. The decision of the Registrar and Senior Vice-President Academic is subject to the appeal of the Academic Council of the University.
Attendance will be monitored at all classes, and in the event of undocumented absences students will be called to interview by module coordinators. All students are required to provide documentary evidence for classes missed.
