The information below is relevant for students enrolled in MASt, MSc, and the CDT in Mathematics.
Students in MASDOC and MathSYS CDT should refer to their CDT's webpages using the links below:
The pages are designed to give you a quick friendly overview and describe the requirements for obtaining a degree. There is also some advice to help you get the most out of your study here. If you have just arrived, read this straight away to get off to a good start. If you are a prospective student, this should be a good guide to what Warwick degrees offer. If you have any concerns you should seek advice from the relevant departmental contact.
Additional resources can be found on the page of the Doctoral College. This contains information about general academic matters and about the various welfare and support services that are available.
Please find below a list of the services and information for Mathematics postgraduate students.
Absence, Attendance and Monitoring
Your engagement is recorded through monitoring points, which outlines a series of ‘points of engagement’ or contact points that you are expected to meet throughout that year, comprised of various meetings, classes, training
sessions, academic activities, and the submission of assessed work. The monitoring points are recorded on Tabula. You can view your monitoring points here.
Updated guidance on Monitoring points: Please note that the students will be automatically contacted by the University when they have one missed monitoring point, and that the department is required to take formal action when a minimum of six monitoring points are missed, noting that in light of best practice, the PG Coordinator, Administrator, Course Leader or PGR Director may contact students who have missed fewer numbers of consecutive monitoring points as part of department procedure to ensure student engagement and support.
Some of your monitoring points may occur via email/online/Skype where appropriate [e.g. over the summer
months/during work on dissertations/fieldwork/module registration/or electronic submission of work] but a significant proportion should be via face-to-face contact.
Please see the guidance on how to record attended or missed monitoring points meetings on Tabula here.
The University policy regarding sickness absence for students states that students should self-certify absences
due to sickness for absences of up to seven days, except where the absence is at a time of significant
assessment. Absences at a time of assessment/examination, and absences longer than seven days must be
supported by a doctor’s note/medical certificate. This information should be supplied by email or via the
online absence form.
If you are likely to be unwell for a longer period, you may wish to consider taking a period of temporary
withdrawal from your course of study. Further information is available here.
Tier 4 students should seek advice from the Student Immigration and Compliance team regarding how periods
of temporary withdrawal or authorised absence may affect their visa and their right to stay in the UK. Please record any Tier 4 absences by completing this form.
