Attendance and Engagement

Students registered on University of Exeter programmes are required to:

• be in attendance* during academic terms and present at all scheduled learning and teaching activities required by the module and/or programme

• engage with and participate in all guided independent and group study, assessment and feedback, and any other activities required by the module and/or programme

• attend examinations, submit work when required, and otherwise fulfil the academic requirements of their modules and programme.


 *Attendance encompasses the activity of being present at scheduled learning, teaching and other activities required by the module and/or programme whether this is physical or virtual attendance as defined by your programme teaching methods.



Academic engagement levels are recorded to ensure that any student welfare concerns are picked up, tier 4 international students meet their visa obligations and students are progressing academically.

Evidence of student engagement with their degree is captured via three main points, assessment submissions, attendance at teaching sessions and ELE usage.


Student absences should be reported via the iExeter Teaching and Learning tile.
