Attendance

You are required to be in attendance at the University for teaching and assessment weeks, as detailed in Regulation IX. If you do not maintain satisfactory attendance, as described in the University’s policy, you may have your studies terminated. The University  operates a digital register using the MyLboro App  which enables you to record your attendance at teaching sessions. The University is required to notify the Student Loans Company and other institutions who 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 money that they have already received.  If you need a visa to study in the UK, then the University will also have to report periods of absence or unsatisfactory attendance to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), which could result in your visa being withdrawn.

If you are unable to attend your teaching sessions, eg because you are unwell, you should inform your academic school. If you are not able to attend for more than two weeks you should discuss with your academic school whether to continue studying or whether a Leave of Absence would be more appropriate.

Support to use the MyLboro App for digital registers is available online, including IT troubleshooting tips.
