Attendance and Workload
- You are expected to attend all tutorials, seminars and lectures offered in connection with each module you are taking. Note that attendance does not mean your mere physical presence. It means doing the required reading and thinking for all the topics being considered, so that you can take an active part in any discussion.
- It is important to realise that your reading should not be restricted to topics on which you are writing an essay. You should spend the equivalent of a full working day on preparing for a particular class. By being prepared to contribute to any topic being addressed in class, you will also better equip yourself to deal with the range of questions in the examination.
- Please note that, in compliance with UCL regulations, the History Department requires that students attend all classes and seminars for their modules. For HIST6XXX modules, you will only need to attend one tutorial session - the module tutor will allocate you to a tutorial group after your first lecture. The minimum level of attendance at classes and seminars is 70%. Attendance will be monitored and any absences must be justified by a valid, documented cause.
- Students whose work or levels of attendance are deemed unsatisfactory on a particular course unit are liable to be deregistered from it by the History Departmental Tutor. In this case, they would not be permitted to take the examination for the module and would receive no credit for any work that might have been done.
