Attendance requirements

You are required to be in attendance at the University for teaching and assessment weeks. Students who do not attend may have their studies terminated. The University is required to notify the Student Loans Company, and other institutions that pay fees, about periods of absence or unsatisfactory attendance. This may lead to financial support being reduced or suspended and it may also lead to students having to repay monies that they have already received.  If you hold a Tier 4 visa which is sponsored by Loughborough University, periods of absence or unsatisfactory attendance may also be reported to UK Visas and Immigration.

Attendance requirements are formally defined in Regulation IX.

You should also make sure you are aware of any specific attendance requirements as determined by your School/Department.

If your School/Department is concerned about your attendance, they will make every effort to contact you and find ways to support you in your studies. If they are unable to contact you, or your attendance remains inadequate, the University will invoke the Termination of Studies process which is outlined in Regulation IX.
