It is recognised that you may be absent from coursework and lectures for a variety of genuine reasons but must inform staff of the reason(s) for any absence immediately or at the first convenient opportunity.
A form for this purpose may be obtained from the school office (Room H608) and must be completed, for each missed, as soon as possible after the absence. One copy is kept in the subject area records, one in the school file and one copy sent to the tutor. If you are absent from coursework you will be awarded zero marks for that piece of work.
Reasons for absence will be taken into consideration when performance in coursework is assessed. Where a prolonged absence is anticipated, e.g. in cases of serious illness, it is essential that the Course Leader is informed and any subsequent change reported.
