Students are required to attend all classes. (Active participations are required during the lessons).
Absence from course units whose attendance is compulsory is acceptable up to 20 per cent of contact hours in those course units. Absence from over fifty percent of contact hours shall lead to that unit having to be redone to fulfil course unit requirements. Absence from over 20 percent but less than 50 percent of contact hours in a course unit shall lead to an obligation to make up for contact hours missed, the conditions of which shall be specified in the departmental Course Requirements Guide.
The subsequent obtaining of an end-of-semester mark/mark for student participation and subsequent assessment following the receipt of a ’fail’ mark is confined to one assessment days during the examination period. An unsuccessful retake shall entail the student’s obligation to do that course unit again.
