6.1 Attendance and Submission of
Attendance at all lectures, classes,
laboratory sessions and tutorial periods, is normally compulsory for
all Delegates undertaking a taught module, irrespective of whether they
are undertaking a postgraduate course of study or a single taught module.
Submission of all coursework will normally be mandatory. Delegates not
meeting these conditions will not be permitted to sit the appropriate
written examination [Sections 7.8 and 9].
Delegates unable to attend the residential
component of a module will be required to do so at a later date, or
will be required to undertake another module, with the agreement of
the Director of Studies at the institution where the Delegate is registered.
If a Delegate is unable to attend a particular full day within the residential
component of a module, for reasons of ill health or other good cause,
then a medical certificate, or alternative equivalent evidence, will
be required. Delegates missing sessions or lectures of a module should
provide written evidence to the Director of Studies. Its acceptance
will be at the discretion of the Board of Examiners.
The Programme of study shall normally
be continuously pursued although a Delegate may, with the permission
of the Board of Studies, withdraw temporarily from the Programme of
study. The period of interruption will normally not exceed one year.
The time to complete the Programme of study will normally be extended
by the duration of the period of interruption.
A Delegate who wishes to withdraw permanently
before the normal completion of the course shall give notice in writing
to his/her Director of Studies, who shall inform the Registry or Student
Office of the Institution where the Delegate is registered, and the
Programme Director who will be responsible for informing the Board of
Studies and reporting the matter to the Board of Examiners.
