6. Attendance

6.1 Attendance and Submission of Work

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].

6.2 Absence

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.

6.3 Withdrawal

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.
