Attendance at classes is obviously the most important basis for your study and for that reason is compulsory, unless you are explicitly informed otherwise.

You should be aware that your attendance will be deemed unsatisfactory if you miss more than two classes in a module without adequate excuse. You should also be aware that we have various ways of monitoring your attendance, including the taking of various kinds of register. The College Office (Info at St Luke's Office for St Luke's) collects this data, and you will automatically receive warnings should your attendance be unsatisfactory

Persistent absence without good cause will lead to the implementation of the procedures for dealing with unsatisfactory students and, ultimately could lead to withdrawal from the University. Please also note that under the new tier 4 Government Points Based Monitoring System, non-attendance by International students may be reported to the UK Border Agency and action will be taken to remove student visas if compulsory contact is not maintained.

You should also be aware that the University requires that you should be in attendance as appropriate to your programme of study from the first to the last day of term and that you must ask permission you wish to be absent from the University for any considerable period during term time.
