Attendance and residence

In some cases, students can be granted exemption from University attendance and residence requirements.

Exemption from attendance requirements

University Regulations state that undergraduate students should be present at any time at which teaching or other academic engagements have been arranged for their programme (including Saturdays). This includes teaching which is not compulsory.

If you wish to be absent at such a time you must consult your Supervisor who can permit an absence of no more than three days.

An absence of over three days, but no longer than four weeks, can be approved by your Chair of the Board of Studies. Any longer absence during a term which will be counted towards completion of your degree programme requires the approval of Special Cases Committee.

Exemption from residence requirements

Full-time students are normally required to normally live within 40 miles of their ordinary place of study, part-time students within 60 miles. Your departmental Board of Studies can give permission for this limit to be extended.
