We are well aware that circumstances beyond your control may sometimes make it impossible for you to attend your classes. In the event of an accident, ill health or other special circumstances, please do not worry. The School has a number of procedures in place to help you should you be absent from your studies:
- If you are absent for less than seven consecutive calendar days from any class because of illness you must fill in a Personal Sickness Certificate
- If you are absent for more than seven consecutive calendar days because of illness you must submit a medical certificate from your doctor. (If you have not yet registered with a GP, you are strongly advised to do so. A list of local GPs is available).
- If you are absent from any class because of special circumstances you must submit a Notification of Special Circumstances form
Follow the relevant links for electronic copies of these forms. Alternatively, photocopiable versions are available in the appendices of the Student Handbook.
