The Academic year consists of two semesters, one in the fall and one in the spring each 16 weeks long. The Fall semester usually begins during the last week of September and the Spring Semester begins during the first week of February. The Summer semester begins in June and it provides new students with the Intensive English Foundation Course only.
Class attendance is considered an important part of the educational process. It is expected that students will attend all class sessions scheduled for the courses for which they have registered. Academics (Module Leader) are responsible for recording student attendance for the module they are responsible for. This is to be recorded on a typed list for their module. (Class lists are available from the Department Office).The absence limit is 10%.
At the beginning of each semester the lecturers will define absentee limits so they are aware of how many absences students are allowed before it affects their grades and progression. If they do exceed the maximum number of absences their overall grade is automatically deducted by 20% in any unit they did not adequately attend.
At the end of each semester the Module Leader is to provide an overall summary of the student attendance for that module. If the student exceeds 20% of the module in absences he/she automatically fails the module. Attendance list and an overall summary of attendance are to be kept in the relevant module files which are located in the Department Office.
