In line with the general university guidelines, the Language Centre’s official minimum attendance requirement for all LANG courses is 80%. As this course includes a lot of in-class group discussion tasks, regular attendance and active participation are highly recommended.
If you miss 6 or more classes, you will fail the course. After 3 absences, a warning letter will be sent to the student, copying to their department. After missing 6 lessons, the student fails. A letter will be sent to the student and the department and notification to ARR.
Permission of leave will be given in special cases of prolonged leave taken by students for such reasons as serious illness or injuries on production of documentary evidence (i.e. a Doctor’s note), and these absences will not be counted.
