All you need to know about VISAs and studying

Attendance and Engagement with Study

As a Tier 4 student visa holder the University of Kent has sponsored you to come to the UK to follow a full-time course of study. It is a condition of your visa that you participate fully in your studies whilst you are in the UK. You must meet the attendance requirements of your course and comply with the University's procedures for course attendance as well as University Regulations. You are expected to report any absences to your School and provide concessionary evidence in support of the absence if required.

It is important that you attend all of your lectures and seminars. If you are a postgraduate research student it is important that you complete your monthly progress monitoring report on the Student Data System and engage with your research.

Good attendance on your course helps you achieve a better result. If you fail a module you may be able to repeat it but this may mean that you will need to extend your visa to enable you to stay in the UK for longer. The Home Office have imposed strict limits on the amount of time you can spend in the UK as a student and you must ensure that you can complete your course within the time limits imposed, otherwise you may have to leave the UK without your qualification.
