University of Bradford Attendance

As a University of Bradford student, you are expected to attend all scheduled learning activities, together with satisfactory completion and submission of all assessed work required by the relevant programme regulations.

The University needs to make sure you are attending your classes. Not only does consistent and regular engagement with your programme potentially improve your chances of getting better marks, but if we know you are not attending classes we can offer you support if, for example, you have personal or financial difficulties.

University of Bradford Attendance and engagement policy

The University of Bradford is committed to supporting students in maximising their academic achievements.  Part of this commitment is met by monitoring student attendance and engagement as outlined in this policy and the accompanying procedures document.

The University has a duty of care to do all it reasonably can to support students to complete their programmes of study and attain the best possible academic outcomes.  As part of this it is important that student engagement with all aspects of their programme is encouraged and monitored. The University Regulations state:

“Student attendance is expected at all scheduled learning activities, together with satisfactory completion and submission by the due dates prescribed by the School of all assessed coursework and such other practical and written exercises as may be required by the relevant programme regulations.”  (Regulation 6.2)
