If there are exceptional circumstances where a session must be missed, this will need to be arranged with the unit convener in advance. Failure to do so implies a lack of professionalism. Students who are absent for more than 20% of classes will be required to submit, as a minimum, a written essay or report of 2000 words on a topic related to content that was missed. All students with less than 80% attendance must meet this requirement. This provides an alternative and independently verifiable way of demonstrating competence that would normally be assessed in class. Prior to commencing such supplementary assignments, students must meet with the unit convener who will determine specific requirements, evaluation criteria, and deadlines. Substandard performance may result in a requested resubmission or the setting of alternative assignments.
