It's important you maintain good attendance to your classes to ensure you comply with the regulations of your Student route (formerly tier 4) visa.
During term time, you should aim for 100% attendance to all timetabled course related events such as lectures, seminars, workshops, studios and tutorials.
However, we understand that circumstances may arise or you may become ill. If this happens, please let you module or programme leader know as soon as possible. You must also ensure you cover any missed work.
If you have extended periods of absence due to medical, personal or other reasons, it may be best to interrupt your studies. This is will be discussed with you before any decision is made.
If you fail to continually attend without a good reason, the University may class you as having withdrawn from study and you will no longer be an enrolled student of MDX.
The below timeline shows each stage of non-attendance as well as the decisions and actions that will be taken.
|Stage one||Stage two||Case review|
|Level of non-attendance|
|Action||Formal first warning||Formal second warning||Student route visa sponsorship withdrawn if no response received in Stage one and two|
The decision will be one of three courses of action:
|No further action||Offer interruption of studies||Student route sponsorship withdrawn|
Until the appeal is concluded, the decision of withdrawal will remain in force
If you continue to have poor attendance and fail to provide satisfactory reasons for your non-attendance and/or fail to improve your attendance, you will be withdrawn from the programme, your Student route visa sponsorship will be cancelled and you may be reported to the Home Office.
