Remember to scan your Student Card to register attendance.

Please remember to scan your Student Card to register your attendance at ALL of your timetabled sessions. You can do this at card readers placed outside, or in, teaching rooms. If you do not do this you will be marked as absent.

This is important as research shows good attendance helps students enjoy university, get better grades and reduce the risk of academic failure or withdrawal. Monitoring attendance also helps us support students who could benefit from further academic or wellbeing support.

Please complete this form if you have a reason to notify us about your absence from a scheduled class which you wish to be authorised.

Please note that only exceptional evidence based reasons for absence can be authorised. This form should not be used for reporting minor absences due to illness or unforeseen events.
