Attendance and Progress Monitoring

The University's Good Practice Guide on Monitoring Student Attendance and Progress at all levels of study is intended to help departments in supporting students’ learning through monitoring their attendance and academic progress.

Attendance requirements

Students classified as "full-time" are required to complete no less than 21 hours per week over 24 weeks of the year (including self-directed study). Such students are not, therefore, permitted to undertake full-time employment during term-time. International students may also have further limitations placed on the hours they can work in order to comply with the requirements of their UK visa.

All students are expected to be regular and punctual in their attendance at classes. Students are required to remain in residence throughout the full period of any term. Any student deemed to have unacceptable levels of engagement may be referred, either by their department or by the Academic Registrar, to a Continuation of Registration Committee as set out in University Regulation 36.

Authorised Absence - Tier 4 Postgraduate Taught Students

The University recognises that in some circumstances it would be preferable for a student to be able to take a short period of time away in order to deal with a personal issue, or undertake minor medical treatment, without their visa being curtailed. Where the time needed is quantifiable and equates to less than a total of 6 weeks in an academic year, it is possible for the University to record this period of time as an ‘authorised absence’, rather than a temporary withdrawal. Please note that there should be no engagement in any academic activities during a period of authorised absence. Should there be any then a change of study location would be the appropriate process.

Mode of Attendance PGT; changes to

If you wish to change your mode of study from full-time to part-time or vice versa you should first consult with your personal tutor/course director.

Part-time study for taught postgraduates is normally permitted if a student is only able to study on a part-time basis because of employment or other commitments for a significant part of the working week. Requests to study part-time are subject to approval by the Chair of the Board of Graduate Studies. If you apply to switch to part-time study, you may be asked to provide some documentary evidence.

If you wish to continue with your application to change mode of attendance please email Student Records Management outlining your case.

Students studying under a Tier 4 visa should also be aware that a change to their mode and period of study could jeopardise their right to remain in the United Kingdom and are therefore advised to contact the International Students' Office.
