Attendance and Absences
To get the most out of your studies you'll need to attend all your classes and activities, but we understand that occasionally this may not be possible.
Regular attendance at lectures and seminars is important for your academic progress, but if you have to miss a class through illness or other unforseen circumstances the University is here to support you. Find out what we expect from you and what to do if you need to be absent.
We expect you to attend all teaching activities, including lectures, seminars, practicals and personal tutorials.
Acceptable reasons for absence include health problems, bereavement and serious personal difficulties.
University code of practice on attendance
Sessions organised as part of a programme of study are a crucial part of enabling you to achieve the maximum benefit from your time at the University.
Failure to attend or absence without permission can have serious consequences and may ultimately result in you being excluded from the University.
You may get called to do jury service when you're studying at Leeds. Find out what you should do if you are summoned.
