We want you to get the most out of the year and therefore your attendance will
be monitored; at lectures you will be required to swipe your student ID card on a
designated card reader. If you cannot attend due to illness or an emergency then
you must contact the Assistant Administrator giving the reason for non-attendance.

MRes Course Director(s) to discuss why this is happening and to bring any issues to
resolution. Continued non-attendance will result in further meetings with the Course

Further to this, you must make sure you are on time to all lectures. CoMPLEX
lecturers give up their time to teach and it is respectful to ensure you are seated

CoMPLEX provides a supportive environment for all students, so we would
encourage you to speak with the Centre Administrator in the first instance, if there
are extenuating circumstances that may affect your attendance for a period of time.
